Testing for Jake Archer, Andover’s ‘championship’ motorbike racer, didn’t go to plan.

The 18-year-old British Moto3 Champion has switched to riding a Moto2 for the upcoming season.

Following a collarbone injury while testing in Almeria, Spain. After the trip to the local hospital, it became clear that his testing would need to be halted while he recovered.

Jake Archer recently returned home and saw a trauma specialist, Brain Simpson.

After the under-going assessment, the specialist decided he’d undergo hyperbaric oxygen therapy to aid the hopefully quick recovery.

The 18-year-old rider is still expected to be fully fit for the BSB test at Silverstone which takes place next month (Three weeks time).
