Currie ‘to drown out pain’ as he returns to BSB action at Knockhill

Quattro Kawasaki’s Ben Currie will return to Bennetts British Superbike action this weekend at Knockhill but expects to be quite a bit of pain at the tight Scottish track.

Currie crashed heavily at Oulton Park resulting in multiple breaks in his left foot as well as damage to the knee ligaments in the same leg but believes he is fit enough to ride this weekend after watching Hector Barbera replace him for two rounds.

“It’s been a lot of hard work and a lot of effort has gone in to get to this point but it’s exciting to get back on a motorbike. My foot has almost fully recovered so medically I’m good to go, I’ve just got to drown out the pain,” said the Australian.

I’m going to have a run out for half an hour or so on Wednesday at Donington Park just to make sure my footwork is ok and the pain is manageable.

“It was 50/50 as to whether I’d make it back for this round so I’ll just have to see how it goes but I’m feeling confident. At this stage in the season there’s still plenty of racing to come and I’m keen to get back to doing what I love.”
