Injured Easton ready to go racing

Stuart Easton insists his target of a full-on 2010 BSB title attack remains unchanged, despite recently undergoing surgery for a badly gashed left leg following a testing fall at Cadwell Park.

“I consider myself lucky that it was nothing more, and now I am stitched up and ready to go racing,” declared the Swan Honda rider.

“My bike is much improved on last season, with work on the electronics, and having won two races last year, my clear goal now is to go for the title.

“I have a strong team-mate in James [Ellison] but we have worked well together in testing and development, but come the races, we will both be hungry to beat each other,” added Easton.

The 2010 BSB season starts at Brands Hatch this weekend.

C'mon splodge, if there's one really wise head on young shoulders in that paddock its Easton's. The lad's fast but he's measured. The only thing that would have made me worried on that count is if the crash was due to flaky electronics. But as far as I know it was mostly down to a slippery track surface then a pretty unusual/unfortunate bit of the riderless bike accurately hunting down the rider. Yeah I suppose you could still argue the electronics are going to have to cope with a slippery track too but .......
