Robbin Harms returns to the MCE British Superbike Championship this weekend at Assen after battling back from injury.

The Doodson Motorsport rider had earned the team's best result of the season at Snetterton with seventh place before he was caught up in a crash in race two.

Harms suffered a wrist injury that required surgery, with the former World Supersport frontrunner having substitute bone and metal plates inserted into his right wrist to aid the healing process.

He returned home for a period of rehabilitation and following a test at Zolder in Belgium on Monday, Harms confirmed he was ready for the BSB round at Assen on the Doodson Honda.

"I am looking forward to getting back on the bike again after my injury. The wrist is not as good as before and I probably going to swallow some pain during the weekend," he said.

"But I am confident that it is going to work as I have been training hard to make it strong again."

Team owner Tom Tunstall added: "We've got to be patient and get an understanding of the condition of his wrist.

"However, he scored two strong top ten results last year at Assen and we are confident that he and the Doodson team will be able to improve on his results in the final races this season."
