British Grand Prix hero Cal Crutchlow has already been back in the gym as he battles to overcome a broken ankle sustained in a crash during practice at Silverstone.
The Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider was forced to start the British MotoGP from the rear of the grid, but valiantly battled through the field to finish sixth to move into fourth position in the championship table.
The 26-year-old is recuperating at home on the Isle of Man as he sets his sights on the forthcoming round at Assen next weekend.
Reflecting on the accident, Crutchlow said he has suffered no 'long term damage'.
“I have a dislocated and broken ankle. We knew the extent more or less straightaway on Saturday.
“It's back in place and there's no real long-term damage and the healing process is the main thing now,” said Crutchlow, who was participating in a live webchat on the Bennetts Bike Insurance Facebook page.
“It's a lot more painful now than it was on Sunday. I'm now back at home on the Isle of Man and I came here to see my doctor, Ross Barker, and he's looking after the ankle really well.
“After what happened last year with the broken collarbone and not being able to race, it was so disappointing,” he added.
“Another error on my part, but we have to look into it because there were three different guys who crashed on exactly the same lap and we all had the same used tyre from the afternoon before.
“I was actually coming into the pits on that lap so I wasn't pushing hard at all, but we managed to high-side the bike although I was able to shut the throttle off fast enough so I fell off the side of the bike.
“It was still a very big crash and I hit my head quite hard as well, which was one of the worst things and I was a little bit dazed at the side of the track.”
Crutchlow conceded that he may have opted to pull out of the race had it not been his home event, adding that he felt he 'owed it to the fans' to race on Sunday.
