Kawasaki MotoGP rider John Hopkins will ride at his second home GP at Donington Park this weekend with a cracked vertebrae. He sustained the injury at Catalunya and it is causing him some pain but he aims to ride through it.
Hopkins is officially Anglo-American and hopes to give the British half of his family something to shout about on Sunday after a poor run of form so far this season.
Following the Catalunya race we had a one day test where I rode as many laps as I could with the back injury I sustained in practice," he said.
"This brought a few positive results before I headed over to England where I've spent time visiting family and friends with Ashleigh. In the lead up to the last two races I had been training very hard so thankfully I haven't lost any fitness, which is always a problem when carrying injuries, and I've had the chance to rest to help the healing process. I'm still very stiff and sore, but Donington Park is like a home away from home, and it's a track I definitely enjoy. For me the British Grand Prix is one of the biggest races of the season, with many members of my family coming to support me, and regardless of my injury I'll be looking to gain a strong result aboard the Kawasaki."
