Burns returns to join Ellison at WCM

Chris Burns looks set to return to the WCM team at the Grande Premio Marlboro de Portugal after missing the last round at Brno through injury. Burns broke his wrist in a crash at Donington Park before the summer break and was replaced in the Czech Republic by James Ellison.

However, with Michel Fabrizio having abandoned the team to take the injured Shane Byrne's place at Aprilia, Burns is confident of lining up alongside British compatriot Ellison at Estoril.

"My wrist is OK but still very sore under heavy braking," said Burns. "I gave it a test on a bike earlier this week. I'll go down to Estoril and get some treatment from Dr Costa and go from there."
