Unitech Racing Yamaha rider Arthur Sissis has been ruled out of the upcoming Mi-Bike Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) round at Queensland Raceway following a broken wrist sustained in a testing crash at the venue.

Sissis, 27, was cutting laps at the Queensland-based circuit last week in preparation for round three of the 2023 ASBK Championship when he high-sided at turn four and broke his wrist, putting him out of contention for the immediate future.

“Unfortunately I won’t be racing at the next round of ASBK at QR,” Sissis shared. “I had a small crash on Tuesday at the test and broke my wrist. Hope to be back for round four in Darwin in a few months’ time.”

It’s a disappointing outcome for the South Australian who is fifth in the ASBK standings following a near-podium finish in race two at Sydney Motorsport Park (SMSP).

While ASBK at Queensland Raceway takes place between 28-30 April, Hidden Valley’s stop on the calendar isn’t contested until 16-18 June giving Sissis over two months to recover before the fourth round.
