Christian Iddon says he will be maintaining the same high target standards for the third round of the MCE British Superbike Championship despite suffering with legacy of his Brands Hatch leg break.

The former World Superbike damaged the limb during the BSB weekend at Brands Hatch, but while he proceeded to complete the weekend, he admits the decision to do so made the injury worse.

Nonetheless, having missed last week's Oulton Park test, Iddon says he has focused on recovering with intense sessions in the hyperbaric chamber and now feels far better prepared for the third round at the same venue. With this in mind, the Bennetts Suzuki rider is confident of achieving good results.

"I've been in the hyperbaric chamber twice a day since Brands," he said. "There's only so long you can spend in there, but I've been doing an hour and a half in the morning and an hour in the afternoon, and it's really helped with the recovery.

"After the second race at Brands Hatch I did more damage to my leg. I could feel it moving as I was riding and for days afterwards I really struggled with the pain. The swelling was really bad and it was actually filled with blood. But that's all gone down with time in the chamber.

"Training to start with was quite difficult. It's hard to do cardio work with a leg injury but I've been using a hand bike. In the last few days I've been able to get on the turbo trainer too, first with no resistance but I've been building that up. So the leg is feeling good.

"There's no change in target this weekend. The only thing I'm worried about is movement. But if we're good to go on a normal setting I think we'll be right. It's a shame I missed the test but I went along and the guys were all working well. We'll get the first session out of the way and then we'll know where we're at but I'm approaching this weekend with the same frame of mind as any other."
