Australian international Cameron Woodward is set to miss the start of the season as he prepares to undergo a bone graft on his still broken femur.

The Coventry signing suffered the injury in a Polish league meeting on September 7, and had hoped to be making his comeback in time for the start of the British season in mid-March.

I will not be starting the 2015 season in March. Unfortunately I will not be able to take my 2015 GP Longtrack position also. I am devastated with this situation.

But a check-up Down Under brought bad news for the 30-year-old, who has appeared for his country in the Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup two years on the bounce.

Woodward is set for surgery to try and heal the bone and admits it will rule him out of the 2015 World Longtrack Championship and the first half of the European league season for Coventry and Polish First Division club Daugavpils.

Writing on Facebook, he said: “As you all know I have been working hard trying everything to help with my recovery.

“I had a check-up on Friday in Brisbane and my femur is still broken. It isn't strong enough to start the season. The next step is a bone graft.

“I will not be starting the 2015 season in March. Unfortunately I will not be able to take my 2015 GP Longtrack position also. I am devastated with this situation and all my team plans have now had to be cancelled until mid-year!

“The work permit issues are so frustrating and leaving all of us riders in total confusion. 

“Thank you all for your continuing support. I will keep you up to date, but please believe this is totally not what I was expecting when I went for my doctor check-up.”
