Crutchlow and Toseland revved up for Portimao

Yamaha WSB duo look to improve on mediocre 2010 start

STERILGARDA YAMAHA British duo Cal Crutchlow and James Toseland are looking to improve on the 'tough time' the pair endured in the open round of the 2010 World Superbike Championship, when the WSB circus moves to Portimao this coming weekend.

Both riders were injured when they crashed out of Race One in Australia. Despite the setback, the pair say they're fit to race at this weekend's event in Portugal:

"I'm really keen to get to Portugal and get back on the bike," said Crutchlow. "Last time I raced here I won the world title in Supersport so I have good feelings for the track. I'm going to put 100% into my efforts this weekend as always and we'll see what happens with the progress the guys have made over the last couple of weeks."

Toseland, who suffered a hand injury in Australia, is also keen to get back on track:

"I'm really looking forward to it," he said. "We had a tough time in Australia but I believe the team has been working really hard in the meantime and the test went well in Misano. My hand is nearly back to normal although there's still a bit of pain. I'm basically looking forward to getting out on track and seeing what progress we've made to catch up."
