Incredible bid by Kirton's Ben Wilson to race less than a fortnight after leg break




Less than two weeks after breaking a leg, Ben Wilson is desperate to make an astonishing return to the race track this weekend.

It had seemed that the Kirton rider’s British Supersport season was over after the injury to his right tibia and fibula when he high-sided his Kawasaki at Thruxton on August 4.

But the lure of racing at Cadwell Park this weekend is big. He will undergo a medical on Thursday to see if he is fit enough to race at the Lincolnshire circuit.

Wilson said: “If there is a chance I can race at Cadwell obviously I will take it.

“It’s the one race I have been looking forward to all season and it will be so disappointing if I have to miss it.

“I have been having sessions in the hyperbaric chamber twice a day and also seen the chiropractor every day for laser treatment and other specific work to aid the healing process, which is really helping but the final decision rests with the medical staff.”
