Toseland: “I’ll be fit to race in Kyalami”

1 of 1

James Toseland has told MCN this morning that he will be OK to race in Kyalami this weekend despite being involved in a horrific first corner pile-up in Monza on Sunday.

Toseland crashed on the approach to the first chicane and was hit by other riders as well as his own bike as he tumbled across the track and onto the grass.

Toseland was taken to hospital in Monza with concussion and neck pains but after receiving an x-ray and a CT scan returned to the track in the evening.

The double WSB champions who secured a second place podium in race one had a neck brace on and despite clearly being in discomfort remained up beat about his weekend performance and his ability to be able to race this weekend.      

“It was a big crash and it’s always scary when you get hit on the head or neck. I already feel better this morning, I fly to South Africa this afternoon and I’m going to be OK to race.”

For full story see MCN out Wednesday 12th May.
