Crutchlow ignores dislocated knee

The Briton dominated last year's World Supersport race around the German circuit too.
Cal Crutchlow is confident he won't be affected by a knee injury sustained during the summer hiatus between World Superbike races as he looks to continue on from his Silverstone breakthrough.

Crutchlow won his first WSBK races with a double victory on home soil at Silverstone, the Briton catapulting himself up the overall order to fifth place in the process.

However, his preparations for the final three rounds, starting with the Nurburgring, have been hampered by a dislocated knee he sustained in an accident on a push bike.

Despite that, Crutchlow is confident he can overcome that to display the kind of form that saw him win at Silverstone and also dominate last year's Supersport race at the Nurburgring.

"I managed to dislocate my knee riding my bicycle over the holiday but it is pretty much back to normal now and will be fine for the races,” the Yamaha rider said. "I had a brilliant result at the Nürburgring last year. It would be perfect to repeat the success I had on the R6 Supersport bike on the R1 Superbike.

“I can't wait to get back on the bike again. Finally winning two races at Silverstone was the result of lots of hard work by the team and I. We all want to get straight to Germany and hope to do it again. I always find the summer break too long and really miss racing so I'm happy it's time to go again."

Yeah WSB needs at least another 2 or 3 rounds added. They lost Brands and haven't replaced it and they were meant to be going to Indonesia but they shelved that as well. Hopefully we'll get Silverstone and Donington next year as there's no way the Flammini's and Palmer are going to sort their differences sadly, especially when you consider that putting BSB on close to the old Brands WSB date has been really successful the last couple of years. I've heard rumours from my mate in Japan that they may be getting WSB there next year so finger's x'd peeps. As for Cal, he'll do well this weekend i reckon :)

With Spies promotion the vacancy is now - no point waiting a year beacause if someone else fills that seat and does a fair job next season he misses his chance. This type of opportunity doesn't come up often - apparently it's a two year deal. Destro please don't compare him with Spies - that would be ridiculous.
