Davies out for remainder of Barcelona weekend following Superpole Race crash

The Welshman has been declared unfit following a heavy fall during Sunday's first race of the day

The opening race on Sunday for the 2021 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship's Hyundai N Catalunya Round at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya was action-packed from the start. However, Chaz Davies (Team GoEleven) will take no further part in the race weekend following a crash for the Ducati rider with Lucas Mahias on Lap 3 of the Tissot Superpole Race.

The crash, which started at Turn 11 but then finished in Turn 12 left Davies on the ground, conscious but in discomfort. He was stretchered away and taken to the medical centre, where he was diagnosed with a lumbar contusion, whilst remaining stable and conscious. The 32-time World Superbike race winner has been transported to Catalunya Hospital for further assessments.

Everyone at WorldSBK wishes Chaz Davies a speedy recovery.
