Byrne okay for Brno

The Althea Ducati team says that Shane Byrne is 'completely recovered' from the nasty hand injury he suffered during the Imola test, and will thus be fit to ride alongside Carlos Checa at this weekend's Brno round.

Byrne finished fourth in race one at the Czech track last season, and has claimed a best of sixth so far this season.

Team-mate Checa has stood on the podium four times in 2010 - and would have added two victories had it not been for his Miller mechanical disaster.

The Spaniard recorded 2-5 finishes as a Ten Kate Honda rider at Brno last year.

“Brno is a track on which our two riders have taken some great results in the recent past and for this reason I am very confident ahead of the coming weekend's races”, said
Genesio Bevilacqua, general manager of Althea Racing.

“In Misano, Carlos demonstrated once again that he is capable of fighting against the two championship leaders and I also expect a strong performance from Shane, in line with his recent results at this track.

"The team is ready, as are the bikes and the riders can't wait to get on track. We're fully prepared for the next battle."
