Danny Webb intent on Germany comeback

1 of 1

British teenager Danny Webb is planning on riding through the pain barrier in Germany this weekend, just three weeks after breaking his right collarbone in his home race at Donington Park.

Doctors have told Webb he needs at least four weeks to recover, with the severity of the break in his collarbone likely to see him never regain full movement in his shoulder.

But he is planning on visiting Dr Claudio Costa on Thursday before making a final decision on whether to return to his Aprilia.

“I am going to Germany planning on riding. I will see Dr Costa when I get there and in Assen he was pretty positive that I could ride.

"I haven’t been able to do much training but I feel ready to comeback and I’m going with the intention of riding. I’m only doing a bit of cycling on an exercise bike but I’m off the painkillers now.”

Webb said he had been tempted to miss this weekend’s clash, as he would then have five weeks to make a complete recovery with the 125s not racing in Laguna Seca.

But he added: “If Costa is not too sure then I might sit it out and wait for Brno.”
