Swan Yamaha's Noriyuki Haga continues to feel the effects of his injured shoulder but remains committed to finishing on the rostrum in the MCE British Superbike Championship.
Haga suffered a broken left collarbone in a crash during free practice at Cadwell Park and was severely hindered by the injury at Donington Park, where he failed to break into the top six on his Yamaha YZF-R1.
After missing out on a place in the coveted Showdown round of the championship, the Japanese ace is aiming to round off his debut season in BSB on a high at the final rounds of the series, starting this weekend at Assen.
“Assen is one of my favourite tracks and it is also a very difficult track too; I think it is good to go and race there,” said Haga.
“I still have pain with my collarbone and there is not much time between the races now but I will do my best for the races.
“I am disappointed about my results at Cadwell Park and Donington Park because of my injury but I am always trying to do the best I can,” he added.
“I am always trying to get podium finishes.”
