It’s definitely seems like the year of the collarbone as another rider joins the list of breaking one – Celtic Racing’s Corey Alexander. According to a team release, the reigning AMA SuperSport East Champion broke his collarbone in a training related accident this past Wednesday near his home in Carmel, New York.
With the next round coming up at Road America in a few weeks, Alexander flew to California yesterday to see renowned surgeon Dr. Arthur Ting to have surgery on the collarbone today.
Although Alexander was bummed about the setback of the injury, he’s looking to make the best out of the situation and do his best at Road America to salvage some points for the championship.
“I can’t thank everyone enough for getting together to try and make it possible to ride at Road America,” Alexander said in a team release. “I don’t really know what to expect but can only hope for the best. It’s unfortunate that it had to happen and I apologize to all our Celtic/HVMC sponsors, my crew, and my personal sponsors. I’ll do my best to get through this and hopefully get some points to make the best of it next [race] weekend.”
Alexander is the current AMA SuperSport points leader after his dominant-double race win in the season opener at Daytona International Speedway.
