Byrne faces race for fitness in time for BSB after breaking hand in Almeria - News

Shane Byrne faces a race to get fit in time for the British Super Bikes first race opener at Donington Park after breaking his hand in a crash at Almeria.

Byrne was unfortunate to be spat off after a highside on the Paul Baird Motorsport Kawasaki ZX10. The initial checks by the Donington Park medical team confirmed the break and he was rushed to hospital to have pins and a plate inserted to accelerate the healing process. He will even be flying back  to the UK to recover in a hyperbaric chamber which should speed up bone growth and the healing process. Shane said "I've broken my left hand which resulted in an operation last night to fix it. The long and the short of it is one of my knuckles disappeared down into my hand and broke it. The good news is though I was operated on and with some screws and plates, it’s all been put back together so I’m already on the mend". Byrne has just three weeks to heal and be ready for the first race, After last years performance which was excellent, he really needs to be in top form to keep as his rivals will be hot on his heels. The competition has always been close and last year resulted in some exceptional races.
