Have to say good luck to Leon. Racers really are a special breed apart from the rest of us. That's a badly broken leg, and he's put himself through hell to pass the medical and he'll still go race at pace that even a properly quick road rider or even or club racer would shake their head at in wonder.

My guess is Leon is looking to get points and hold his season together and cement his credentials to remain in WSBK as a rider in demand. He's not had things go his way really - and this leg break at the season start with a new team is just what he didn't need.

I can't see him on the podium - that's the stuff of Disney movies surely. But bringing it home safely with some half-decent results would be just the ticket.
