Battered Kawasaki MotoGP man John Hopkins has said his injuries shouldn't cause him too many problems at the Czech MotoGP round this weekend.
The Anglo-American rider has spent seven weeks recovering from a massive crash at Assen and has had to undergo an operation to sort out fractures in his left leg which meant he sat out his home round at Laguna Seca.
"I'm feeling pretty good now, and I'm anxious to get back on track. I've now got full movement back in the injured knee and it's been fine during my training regime up to now," said Hopper.
"I don't think it's going to cause me any problems on the bike, but it's been almost seven weeks since I've thrown a leg over the Ninja ZX-RR, so I won't know for sure until we start free practice on Friday. Brno is a track I like a lot, and I believe it's the MotoGP track I've ridden most frequently in my career, which means I know the place like the back of my hand.
"Also, our Bridgestone tyres work well at this track, and this combined with the new parts that Kawasaki are bringing to the Czech Grand Prix means we've got some positive things to work with. Even though the rehab at home with family and friends has been enjoyable, I am really looking forward to seeing the team, getting back on the bike and finding again the total mental focus necessary for the best possible result this weekend."
