Torres escaped serious injury in high-side

Although Jordi Torres was sidelined after a fast high-side on the second day at Jerez, the Althea BMW Racing rider escaped without serious injury.

Torres managed just seven laps of the Jerez circuit on Day Two before crashing hard at Turn Three.

The Spaniard suffered a fast high-side and landed heavily on his right shoulder, forcing him to rest up.

The good news, though, is that he escaped without serious injury.

"Luckily the pain is muscular and there is nothing fractured," he told the official WSBK website. "Time to rest and recover!"

With the season-opening round taking place in less than a month, there is a still a great deal of work for Torres to cover before Phillip Island.

"The most important thing at the moment is to adapt my bike to my riding style and also my riding style to my bike," he explained.

"We tried different settings to understand how the bike works in different situations. We also tested the Fortis swing arm a lot, and we have different set ups to try – but we don't have any new important improvements at the moment."

Althea BMW Racing will be back in action at Portuguese circuit of Portimao on January 28 for a two-day test.
