O’Halloran assessing shoulder injury following Cadwell Park BSB
McAms Yamaha rider records 7-14 scorecard in challenging weekend.
Australian Jason O’Halloran will have his injured shoulder assessed after it continued to hinder him at Cadwell Park’s eighth round of the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship (BSB) last weekend.
The McAms Yamaha rider, who initially suffered the injury at Snetterton’s sixth round last month, mustered up a seventh place finish in race one, however after being pushed wide at the beginning of the second encounter, the best he could recover to was P14.
“This morning I had to be happy, we got a good start and got away with the leaders and then I just had to manage the race,” O’Halloran explained. “I could only ride the pace I could ride with my shoulder. The bike was feeling good and we picked up some points.
“In the second race we started on row three and I got another mega start, just like we have all year, but it was probably a little too good as I ended up on the outside in fourth and I got hit from the inside and punted off the track so the race was over at that point.
“I stuck at it as you never know, a couple of points is a couple of points and the safety car could have come out. I managed to finish 14th. I’ve now got three weeks off, so I’m going to get my shoulder looked at as it should be better by now. Hopefully we can find out what the prognosis is and move on to Oulton Park.”
The number 22 is currently ranked 10th in the championship standings as the series heads to Oulton Park on 6-8 September.
