Cadwell Park BSB: Ellison confirmed for Cadwell Park return

"It's an incredible feeling to be heading to Cadwell this weekend!" - James Ellison.
James Ellison will make an early return from injury at this weekend's Cadwell Park BSB round.

After breaking his femur in the second race at Brands Hatch, Ellison was forced to miss the following rounds at Thruxton and Oulton Park, dropping him from third to seventh in the standings.

However following extensive Hyperbaric chamber and physiotherapy sessions, Ellison has now been passed fit to ride by the MCE British Superbike Championship and will re-join Lloyds British GBmoto Kawasaki team-mate Chris 'Stalker' Walker this weekend.

"It's an incredible feeling to be heading to Cadwell this weekend!" said Ellison. "When I was in hospital after the crash, my surgeons told me that my season was over and I wouldn't even be weight-bearing on my leg for 2-3 months.

"That would likely have been true if it wasn't for the amazing work by the guys at the Hyperbaric chamber in the Isle of Man. They gave up their own time to open the facilities for me, even on weekends, and after 2 and a half weeks I wasn't just walking but cycling, so I owe them a massive debt.

"Unfortunately, Cadwell is the most physically demanding circuit on the calendar and up until 2009 was probably my least favourite too.

"That said, since then I have started to enjoy it and have actually had some good results, but until we get out for first practice we just won't know how the injury will affect me, particularly over full race distance.

"If we can walk away with two point-scoring finishes and still be in with a shot of the Showdown, I'll be over the moon!"

I hope James has also had his eyes tested, as he didn't seem to be able to see where the track went once he got to the front at Brands. I say this as a concerned fan from N.W. England.
