AFTER intensive treatment in a hyperbaric chamber and physiotherapy, Liam Delves heads to Norfolk for round eight of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship at the fast and complex Snetterton circuit.
Last time out, the 22-year-old Solihull rider suffered a crash which caused ligament damage to his shoulder and caused him to pull out of the final race at Cadwell Park as he was unable to safely control the powerful superbike.
Delves said: “In the crash, I pulled the ligaments in my upper shoulder and unfortunately, despite the medical team and Multi-Function Fitness trying everything they could to help me, I just hadn’t got the strength to hold on to the Superbike and reluctantly pulled in to retire from race two.
“Along with my team boss I made the difficult decision to sit out race three as I just was not fit enough to continue.”
Since then, Delves has undergone intensive treatment and is grateful to everyone who has aided his recovery which will allow him to race at Snetterton.
Delves added: “A Massive thank you to the lovely people at the Mercia MS Therapy Centre for helping me to recover from my shoulder injuries and allowing me to use the Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber before I head to Snetterton with Rapid Training Rapid CDH Racing Kawasaki Fuelled by Cheshire Mouldings and Woodturnings Ltd.”
