Injured Abraham hoping for dry race

Injured Abraham hoping for dry race
Thursday, 16 May 2013

Karel Abraham returns to action as the MotoGP™ season continues at Le Mans this weekend. The Cardion AB Motoracing rider remains in pain with his right shoulder and is hoping for a dry Monster Energy Grand Prix de France on Sunday afternoon.

The Czech was injured in a qualifying crash for the Grand Prix of The Americas, having collided with GO&FUN Honda Gresini’s Bryan Staring. Although he attempted to race in Jerez two weeks ago, he pulled out on Friday due to the agony being endured.

“I am looking forward to getting back to racing,” Abraham says in France on Thursday. “Hopefully we’ll all be able to do our best for good results. My shoulder has not quite healed yet, but it is much better compared to Jerez; I don’t think it is going to affect my performance very much. I am hoping for a dry race because the Le Mans circuit is notoriously known for having several types of asphalt, each with different adhesion qualities.”

Whether Abraham’s wish for good weather comes true remains to be seen, but forecasters are continuing to predict intermittent showers for the duration of the race weekend.
