Xaus hoping on Imola return

BMW man ready to return after breaking thigh at Brno

RUBEN XAUS is likely to make his return to the WSB Championship this weekend at Imola after breaking his thigh at Brno in July.

The BMW rider won twice at Imola back in 2003 and has been given the all-clear to get back on the factory BMW S1000RR after having to sit out the past two rounds of the series.

He said: "My physiotherapy and rehabilitation has gone very well and I think I will be able to race in Imola. Just before Imola, I will get on a bike and see how my leg behaves and how it feels when I get off the bike. In the normal scheme of things, I should really not be on a bike at all before Portimao (final round on Oct 25), but everything has gone well so far and I am very eager to get on my bike and race. I saw the progress at Brno before I crashed and I am itching to get on my bike and see how much progress the team have made since then. There is no absolutely final decision about Imola yet, but I am very, very hopeful."
