McWilliams hopeful of Assen return

Jeremy McWilliams is hopeful of returning to action at Assen in two weeks time after missing Sundays race at Catalunya due to injuries sustained in a morning warm-up crash.

The British rider rose gingerly to his feet after losing control of his Aprilia at high speed and seemed to be okay, but was later taken to a nearby hospital for internal checks on the recommendation of MotoGP medic Dr Costa.

Im fine, but I just needed to get checked out, commented McWilliams, who was discharged from hospital on Sunday evening and returned home to Belfast. I landed pretty heavily on top of the bike and the pain was pretty bad. Hopefully Ill be fit for Assen because this crash was the last thing I needed.
