Just when it didn’t appear that Josh Herrin’s debut season of World Championship road racing could get any worse after the AirAsia Caterham Moto2 rider crashed out of the first two races of the series, it just did. Herrin will miss this weekend’s Argentinian round after suffering a broken collarbone in a Supermoto crash at his home in Georgia.

Herrin’s collarbone was broken in two places and he underwent surgery today in California to have the collarbone plated.

“I was really excited to go to Argentina and I just want to say sorry to the team, sponsors and the fans that I won’t be there,” Herrin said in a team release. “I wish the team all the best and I can’t wait to see everyone again and get back on my bike soon.”

The team says it won’t replace Herrin for this weekend’s race and will run just team leader Johann Zarco.
