Easton aiming for Oulton Park comeback in Showdown bid

Thursday, August 27 2015

Stuart Easton has his sights fully focused on making a remarkable comeback from injury with the PBM Kawasaki team at Oulton Park next weekend (4/5/6 September) as he returns to bid for a position in the Showdown at the triple-header.

Easton crashed out at Brands Hatch in July, sustaining a broken right tibia and left ankle, leaving him sidelined and watching his rivals gain on him in the overall standings over the past two rounds. However after a strong start to his campaign and despite not scoring points in the previous six races, Easton is still locking out fifth position in the overall standings and currently holds a 13 point advantage over sixth placed Michael Laverty ahead of the three races at Oulton Park.

Easton said: "It's unbelievable to think that we are five weeks after the crash and today (Thursday) I have been to see the surgeon and he was happy with my recovery progress. The doctor said the average recovery time and we have halved that with our plan. The first two weeks afterwards I was fully immobile and in a fair bit of pain and then I really turned a corner and I was able to shuffle myself around on my backside, but I could still do work on my upper body strength. I have been doing everything I can and now by week five I have been able to weight bear and there is still a week to go.

"I have been so focused on Oulton Park as that always had to be my goal - because the Showdown is still there I couldn't give up on it until I had tried everything to be in it. A couple of weeks ago I thought it wouldn't be possible but I am now really positive that I can ride. There is obviously a big difference between riding and racing for a top ten finish in BSB, I know that.

"If it was just down to will alone I would make the Showdown because I have done everything possible to come back to Oulton Park and make it happen. It is exciting to be in this position now knowing it could still be possible to make the Showdown even after missing so many races - we are coming to try and make it happen. It is a big ask, but it certainly won't be through the want of trying if we don't make the top six."
