Elias could return in time for Sachsenring race

After missing the A-Style TT Assen last weekend, Toni Elias is also a likely absentee from Sunday's GAS British Grand Prix at Donington Park, suffering from a shoulder injury sustained in practice last Thursday.

After travelling to Barcelona to admit himself to the Clinica Dexeus, scans on the Spanish rider confirmed that he had suffered a fracture without muscle or tendon damage. Doctor Xavier Mir advised against surgery but set out a physiotherapy plan for the Fortuna Honda rider's speedy recovery.

Dr Mir's prediction for Elias' return is three weeks, ruling him out of the British race and cutting it fine for a comeback at the Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland.

The development of the healing process will be evaluated today in a new scan.
