DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 9, 2013) – No pain no game. After crashing out during a qualifying session at Barber Motorsports Park last month, Elena Myers suffered a broken collar bone and was forced to miss the remainder of competition for the weekend. Following an immediate successful surgery and an extensive rehab routine balanced with the right amount of rest, Myers is back on the saddle and has been cleared to race at Mid-Ohio this coming weekend.

“I’m very happy to be healthy again in time for Mid-Ohio,” said Myers. “The crash at Barber was just a freak thing that I’m confident won’t happen again. I know exactly what I did wrong and I’ve fixed the issue. I’m looking forward to getting back out there and competing this weekend.”

Myers has not yet gotten back on her motorcycle since the injury occurred but is currently in route to Gingerman Raceway in Michigan to get a quick round of testing in before heading east to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course to compete in the GoPro Daytona SportBike rounds of competition set to be held July 12-14, 2013.

The Castrol/Triumph/Apex Manufacturing rider will be mounted on her 2013 Triumph Daytona 675 and looks to get back to her usual competitive ways as she fell to 13th in the GoPro Daytona SportBike point standings after missing out on the two races at Barber for Round 3 of action on the 2013 GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing schedule.
