Parkes eyeing Monza return

Broc Parkes is planning a return to World Superbike Championship action at the following Monza round after being forced to withdraw from Assen.

The Australian rider injured his arm, wrist, knee and collarbone after an accident whilst testing at Snetterton, forcing him to fly home and undergo surgery.

Replaced at Assen by Stuart Easton, Parkes was frustrated to be missing an event having scored the team's first top ten of the season in Valencia, but has vowed to get back on track for the next round in Italy.

"I was disappointed for the team this weekend and was frustrated sitting here watching at home, but I'm recovering well and getting back into shape.

“I have to get my staples out on Tuesday and then I'll be able to start swimming and getting some strength back in the shoulder. I'm glad we've got a couple of weeks to spare so hopefully I'll be ready to go again in Monza."
