Toseland to get Mugello test

James Toseland will ride the BMW Italia during the practice sessions for the Italian-based CIV Superbike series this weekend.
James Toseland has been given the opportunity to measure his fitness ahead of his home World Superbike round at Silverstone with a test at Mugello this weekend.

The Briton has endured a stuttered season since breaking his wrist in a testing accident back in March, with Toseland's repeated attempts at a comeback resulting in just a single start at Miller Motorsports Park.

Nonetheless, having withdrawn from the recent Brno round after FP1, Toseland is optimistic he will complete a full weekend with BMW Italia at Silverstone, his first home event of the year after sitting out Donington Park.

In an effort to get him back to speed, GPOne.com is reporting that Toseland will take part in the practice sessions for this weekend's CIV Italian Superbike series at Mugello.

Just got to get something off my chest about this james is rubbish thing, If james was so bad a gp and had lost his edge, why did he have over 100 points in his first gp year, and Cal so far has 30. Seems to me as if if was not that bad after all. Just a thought.

he does seem to be using his brain this time and not trying to ride until he is fairly fit,in the past he would have ridden and probably fallen off and caused more problems. Good luck James and come back when you are fit.
