Stoner fit for Brno return

Casey Stoner has confirmed that he will be back in 125cc World Championship action at Brno in two weeks' time. The KTM Red Bull rider has been out of action since breaking his collarbone in a practice crash at the Sachsenring circuit last month but is stepping up his training programme at home in Australia and is looking forward to getting back to competitive action.

"It was frustrating to miss out at Sachsenring and Donington Park but it's been nice to spend some time at home and make a proper recovery," commented Stoner, who lies fourth in the current standings. "I've been seeing a specialist out here and had some x-rays and the break is healing nicely, so I will be back on the bike at Brno.

"The shoulder is still quite sore but I've been able to start training again recently and I should be able to do some motocross in the next few days. The only problem is that it's actually snowing out here at the moment and we had to get the 4x4 out the other day just to go to the shops so the conditions aren't ideal!

"I've got a few media commitments to deal with over the next week or so and then I'll be heading back to Europe to catch up with my parents, who are already in the Czech Republic having a holiday.

"The plan is to stop off in Frankfurt to see a specialist, who has prepared a shoulder brace that I might be able to wear to protect the collarbone when I ride, and then it will be on to Brno to get ready for the GP. I really can't wait to get racing again."
