Road racer Cameron Beaubier, who finished third in this years Daytona 200 race, today fractured his right knee and injured his wrist – requiring surgery to pin the bones in his knee together.
What was he riding when he did this? Not his Yamaha R6, but a 50cc Yamaha Zuma scooter.
Apparently, he clipped an “unseen hazard” while riding in Cyprus.
Commenting on the incident, Cameron said, “I’m so disappointed to have injured myself, and in such an odd manner. It happened so quickly, and I’m fortunate that there were no other vehicles around at the time. I’m not yet sure what my prognosis is for racing at Road Atlanta (April 20-22) in a few weeks, but I’m hopeful for a quick recovery.”
We hope you have a speedy recovery Cameron – and watch out for those scooters. They can get away from you!
