Dual World Supersport Champion Andrew Pitt has undergone successful surgery on his badly broken collarbone at Queens Hospital in Nottingham, UK.
Pitt’s operation was carried out by a surgeon recommended by Niall Mackenzie after he suffered the injury at Brands Hatch’s British Superbike round last weekend.
“The collarbone was plated and screwed on Tuesday night,” the Australian said. “The surgeon did a brilliant job and I’m already exercising the shoulder. Unfortunately I am not going to make Cadwell Park BSB, however, I will be testing a Moto2 bike as soon as I am fit to ride.”
Pitt was set to make his Moto2 debut this weekend with the Scott team at Brno in place of Alex de Angelis, who is deputing in MotoGP for the injured Hiroshi Aoyama.
An offer has also been made to Pitt to contest the remainder of WSBK according to his Australian press managers.
