Robbin Harms and the Doodson Motorsport Team are looking forward to returning to British Superbike action this weekend at Assen in Holland, with Harms raring to go following his wrist injury sustained at Snetterton.
Following the high of scoring his best BSB finish with a seventh place, Danish racer Robbin Harms came down to earth with a bang after being taken out by another riders crash and smashing his hand and wrist in the process. Within days Harms underwent surgery to his right wrist which included having substitute bone and metal plates added before returning to Denmark to begin rehabilitation.
Considering the damage sustained, and the importance of controlling a 200BHP superbike throttle and braking with the right hand, his recovery has been rapid. A test at Zolder in Belgium yesterday [Monday] confirmed he is ready to once again climb aboard the Doodson Motorsport Honda.
“I am looking forward to getting back on the bike again after my injury. The wrist is not as good as before and I probably going to swallow some pain during the weekend. But I am confident that it is going to work as I have been training hard to make it strong again”
Team owner Tom Tunstall added:
“It was a tough break for Robbin and the team in more ways than one as he had proved the speed that we all knew he had. We’ve got to be patient and get an understanding of the condition of his wrist. However he scored two strong top ten results last year at Assen and we are confident that he and the Doodson team will be able to improve on his results in the final races this season”.
The tenth round of the British Superbike Championship takes place this weekend [20th-22nd September] at Assen near Groningen in Holland.
