Easton aiming for 2012 comeback

The severe injuries at the NW200 have not deterred the Scottish rider

AFTER the serious injuries suffered at this year's North West 200 Stuart Easton is optimistic that he will return to racing next season.

Easton is now recovering at home after a long period recuperating in hospital from the broken pelvis, broken femur and hand injuries he sustained in the practice crash back in May.

"I'm looking forward to getting back into top gear," said Easton, "It's important just to be patient and keep positive and of course follow medical advice.

"In terms of 2012, the Kawasaki team have kept in touch and boss Nick Morgan has indicated that he would like to kickstart our partnership again.

"I'm due back for an x-ray on 30 August and if the bone has healed well, as doctors have predicted it will, I'll undergo a small operation to shave some bone off the thigh to free a muscle which is sticking to it and preventing my right knee from bending fully.

"Once my knee bend is fully back to normal the plan is to have intensive physio and build up my strength, energy and fitness levels."
