Gerry Signorelli Not Fit To Race With Broken Foot

Gerry Signorelli was deemed "Not Fit To Race" by the Kuryakyn Racing for a Wish Team's orthopedic surgeon. Because of the physical demands of motorcycle road racing, if Signorelli were to race in his condition, he would cause extreme damage to the broken bone in his foot. The AMA Season Finale at NOLA Motorsports Park will be the first race in Signorelli's career that he has missed due to injury. The team was disappointed to make this decision after having solid performances in previous races, but their main concern is Signorelli recuperates.
The Kuryakyn Racing for a Wish Team attended the race, displayed the bike, and Signorelli was present to sign autographs. It was a great opportunity for fans to get up close with the motorcycles and meet their favorite racer.
Signorelli said: "I'm so bummed to end the season with an injury. With the crash I had last week though, I'm fortunate to have only a broken foot and hey after two years on the Harley-Davidson XR1200 beast this was the only time it has kept me down. It's temporary though and I'm healing fast and motivated to train hard for more success in 2013. The Vance & Hines points chase has proven dramatic with tight standings and drama! There have been more crashes in the last few races by the lead guys than ever before!"
