Toseland’s hand still broken

1 of 1

Since arriving at Portimao and visiting the Clinica Mobile James Toseland has learned that he still has a fracture in his left hand following his two crashes at Phillip Island nearly four weeks ago.          

Toseland revealed to MCN earlier this week that he was confident he would be able to ride without painkillers this weekend but it now seems that is not the case. Toseland has spent time in an oxygen chamber in the Isle of Man in an effort to speed the recovery process and has undergone physiotherapy, ultra sound and lazer treatment this morning to help him ride today.   

Speaking to MCN, he said: “I’ve actually been moving house this week so I’ve been lugging boxes and my hand has been still hurting. The day before I flew to Portugal I had a bit of a rest day and my hand felt better so I kind of knew then that there was still something wrong with it.  

“Compared to Australia its better and I’ve got more movement and strength but sideways movement still hurts a lot so I’m going to have to have pain killing injections again which isn’t ideal.”
