MotoGP rookie Neil Hodgson will return to the scene of his greatest triumph when he races at Assen on Saturday.

The d'Antin Ducati pilot wrapped up the 2003 World Superbike championship at the venue and, although still suffering discomfort from a shoulder injury sustained at Le Mans, can't wait to return as a MotoGP rider.

"I obviously have great memories of Assen, winning the World title there last year," said the Brit. "It will be great to go to a track I really know well for the first time this season. I'll be able to get straight down to working on the bike rather than learning the circuit.

"My injuries have cleared up apart from my shoulder which is causing problems when training but not when riding," he added.
