Troy Corser will be another rider that will miss the Kyalami round of the World Superbike Championship.
During Race 1 at Monza, Corser was one of the several riders involved in the horrific pile-up. Hit by another rider, the Aussie crashed and while down another crashed bike struck the back of his neck and smashed his helmet. He struggled to his feet and staggered off the track and collapsed, winded and out of breath. The marshals put him on a stretcher and took him to the ambulance, but after recovering his breath he got to his feet and walked back to the pits. He was battered and bruised, but decided to take part in the restart.
On the first lap of the restart, he crashed at the Parabolica, but fortunately came out with no serious injury except a sore arm and a little daziness, but decided not to start Race 2.
BMW have advised him to avoid competing in South Africa due to the short gap between races and have called up test rider Steve Martin to take his place alongside Ruben Xaus.
