Neukirchner ... not 100% fit

Team Alstare Suzuki’s WSB hero Max Neukirchner has said that his collarbone
injury has nearly healed in the run-up to this Sunday's fourth round of the
championship at Assen.

According to the team, Neukirchner's collarbone, injured in the collision
with Carlos Checa as the pair scrapped it out for the win at Valencia three
weeks ago, is healing well and although he will not be 100% in Assen, he expects
to be competitive right from the start of first practice.

Max said: "Valencia is forgotten and all I am thinking about now is the
future - and that starts with Assen. My injury gets better every day and I hope
that I will be able to give 100% at Assen. I managed two top-10 places in last
year's races, so this year I am chasing podiums for sure -as long as my
collarbone is up to it!"
