Guevera: “I am still not in perfect shape”

Guevera: “I am still not in perfect shape”

Juanfran Guevara will ride through the pain at Le Mans after recovering from collarbone surgery.

After following an exhaustive rehab programme since undergoing an operation on his collarbone last week Juanfran Guevara will be at Le Mans, ready to fight through the pain barrier from free practice on Friday.

Juanfran Guevara:
“I am still not in perfect shape after the operation just last week but hopefully I can do a good job this weekend. The first thing for us to do on Friday will be to try and complete a long run to see how the collarbone responds. My rehab programme at home has gone perfectly so I am in good spirits. We will have some new tyres to use at Le Mans and from what I've been told by my teammates the rear has lots of grip, the front maybe not so much. I didn't get chance to try them at Jerez so I am looking forward to seeing how they feel at Le Mans and drawing my own conclusions. It is a circuit with a lot of hard braking and acceleration, so whilst I think our chassis should be well suited to it we will have to work hard with the setting of the engine.”
