The American will not take part in any further action in Portugal this weekend

Garrett Gerloff (GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team) has been declared unfit for the remainder of the Estoril Round, the third round of the 2022 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship. The American rider topped FP1 and was in the top three going into Saturday before a big highside at Turn 13 sent him tumbling through the gravel. The 26-year-old Texan suffered a deep wound on his left knee.

Gerloff had topped the opening session of the weekend, his first session on top this year. In FP2, he was third and was the only rider to not improve but nonetheless consolidated his consistency. Gerloff was on a run of laps in FP3 when the crash happened and although he was able to get to his feet, further assessments at the medical centre has seen the Texan ruled out.
