The temptation to come back too soon is one which haunts most racers. It would be a great pity if the effort and pain of the physio of the last few weeks was wasted and he aggravated the injury before it had healed properly. If it is true that he has a 50/50 chance of riding at Donington, I would interpret that as him possibly being able to ride with, and despite of, his injury, which indicates that the healing process is probably incomplete. He would be well advised to allow the injury to heal properly and deliver himself into the shoot-out fully fit and ready to fight.
We need a fully-fit Shakey in the shoot-out, otherwise it will be be at best a two horse race.
Tell 'im, Petra !

Im a massive Shakey fan but it not worth coming back for Donnington . Even if Shakey won both races i would imagine Tommy Hill to be on the podium both races so Shakey is not really going to pull back any points worth talking about.

Stay at home Shakey and come back stronger . Who knows maybe Tommy will have a crash and go into Assen on the back foot . That is racing !!!

It kind of depends *exactly* what's damaged whether its good to exercise it by riding or to rest it.

Like you guys, I reckon it'd be great to see him race if he can .... and especially if it helps his fitness.
But I don't want him to prejudice his chances for the shootout.

At the bottom line I just hope Shane listens to his doctors & physios :p

Maybe if two fourth places were worth anything, he'd be out there and riding for them. If he's unlikely to finish on the podium there's no incentive for him to race. Safer activities in the gym can build his fitness back up, maybe even some cycling to stay mentally tuned in.
