Honda’s 2020 Isle of Man TT signing Davey Todd is confident he will be fit in time for testing after revealing a broken collarbone picked up during a training accident.

The road racing prospect heads into the 2020 season as a hot tip for the future after securing a deal ride the brand-new factory-backed Honda CBR1000RR-R on the Isle of Man TT alongside Glenn Irwin, together with a stint in the Superstock 1000 series.

However, his preparations have taken a hit after an accident during training in California left him with a fractured collarbone, forcing him to undergo surgery.

He says he will be back on the bike in time for testing, which for Honda could begin in just over a month’s time when the Superbike team at least is expected to travel to Spain for private testing.

“So just wanting to keep all you guys in the loop. I had a little spill while out winter training in California and busted my collarbone. But on a positive note, had surgery by one of the best in game, already on the mend and be good as new in no time and fighting fit ready for testing!”

Todd, who only made his TT debut in 2018, followed up his maiden outing with an eye-catching run to sixth in the 2019 Senior TT riding a BMW.

He more recently competed in the Macau Grand Prix, finishing in fourth position aboard the Penz BMW S1000RR behind Michael Rutter, Peter Hickman and David Johnson.
