MASTERS - NOTHING SERIOUS

Monday January 15, 2018
SAM Masters has moved quickly to ease the fears of Wolverhampton fans by confirming he WILL be ready for the new season.

Aussie ace Masters crashed in practice for the final round of his national championship and was forced to miss out on a tilt at the title.

He’s suffered a broken bone at the base of his tibia which will be inserted with a screw on Tuesday.

Said Masters: “I could ride in a fortnight if I needed to because it’s nothing too serious even though I need surgery.

“The fact they are putting a screw into the damaged area means they are strengthening it and I’ll be right and good to go pretty quickly.

“I’d like to thank everyone over in the UK for their messages, I appreciate it very much and I’m looking forward to a big season in Europe.

“The Wolverhampton team looks good and I’m really excited about everything, this is only a minor blip in my season prep and I could be back on a bike in two weeks.”

Masters will be back at Monmore for a third straight season with Parrys International Wolves.

Their press and practice session is on Monday March 19, followed by the club talk-in with fans at the Cleveland Arms the following night.

And the tapes rise on a new season on Monday March 26 with fixture information to follow soon.
