MOTORCYCLING: Ben ruled out of Oulton Park return

Ben Wilson once again fell foul to the medical team when he was ruled unfit to race at Oulton Park last weekend.

It is five weeks since the Kirton rider fell from his Gearlink Kawasaki, breaking his right leg in two places in the process.

Since then he has been having daily treatment in the Hyperbaric chamber plus frequent chiropractic sessions in an effort to get fit.

He had a medical prior to the Cadwell races in August but just two weeks after the crash was perhaps a bit too ambitious and he failed the medical.

With another three weeks of treatment under his belt he had high hopes he would be fit for Oulton Park - but he once again failed the medical.

He said: “I tried everything to be ready but it wasn't meant to be.”

Wilson saw his position in the rider standings take another tumble from sixth down to eighth.

The next round is at Assen in two weeks which gives him an extra time to get himself fit and pass the medical.
