Herrin pushing to recover for Jerez

Herrin pushing to recover for Jerez

Josh Herrin is keen to be back on-track in Jerez next week, having been forced to miss this weekend’s Moto2™ Grand Prix of Argentina due to a broken collarbone.

The American rookie suffered the grievance during a post-Austin event at his home, breaking his collarbone in two places and requiring an operation in California. While he admits that returning in Spain may not be possible, that is not stopping the AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing Team rider from attempting a Jerez comeback.

“I crashed last week riding Supermoto at my home,” Herrin explained to on Thursday. “I had surgery as quickly as I could, which was on Monday.

“I start rehab on Friday and we will see how I feel for Jerez. If I don't make Jerez, it will be France. The team and I are of course disappointed, but these things happen. I hope to come hack stronger.”

Argentina marks just the third Grand Prix for Caterham, with Herrin’s team-mate Johann Zarco having qualified on the front row of the grid last time out in Austin.
