Pata Honda's Leon Haslam says his damaged leg is much stronger as the British rider aims high ahead of this weekend's tenth round of the World Superbike Championship in Germany.

Haslam, who became a father for the second time during the summer break, broke his left leg during a crash in practice at Assen and has struggled for fitness since.

However, he was back riding a trials machine over the past four weeks and following more physiotherapy is satisfied his leg is 'back to where I want it to be'.

Haslam said: "The break seems to have gone really fast, but then I've had my hands full a bit with the new baby.

"I've been having some more physiotherapy on my leg and I managed to get back riding a trials bike, which is fun.

"I've also been having a few sessions at my dad's race school and the leg is definitely getting back to where I want it to be," he added.

"So I'm looking forward to getting back on the race bike at the Nurburgring, where I've always been able to battle at the front in previous races.

"The track seems to suit British riders especially, so I hope we can have a good weekend there."
