BSB: Troubled wrist slows Easton's recovery

MSS Kawasaki man tells Visordown a further operation is needed

MSS DISCOVERY Kawasaki's Stuart Easton has suffered another complication to his broken wrist injury after an horrific 193mph accident at Snetterton BSB last month.

Easton snapped the top off his right wrist after he fell from his ZX-10R at the end of the Revett Straight.

But now the injury, which was scheduled to have healed in time for Oulton, has suffered a knock back.

Easton told visordown: "The top of the bone has moved and will probably need re-setting. It's not as bad as it sound though because the growth and repair that has happened so far is still useful because it's already bridged the gap between the two parts of the bone.

"But it might need re-setting now. There was a chance that I might have been able to ride the bike at Oulton, but it was a slim chance - now I'm concentrating 100% on getting back and being strong and ready for Knockhill."
