Jagger's Season Comes to an Abrupt End

Hello Everybody

As reported earlier in the year I've suffered a shoulder injury which has had quite an effect on my racing and fitness.

I was initially told by the minor injuries clinic by an X-Ray that there were no breaks and it was just soft tissue damage.  I had a course of physio treatments and was declared fit to race just prior to the Cadwell Park meeting in April. 

After a promising start there that ended badly with a crash and then at Donington I was frustrated with my results, mainly suffering from lack of fitness and riding time.

With the shoulder showing no signs of improvement and causing me much discomfort, I went back to my doctor who referred me to see a local shoulder physiotherapist.  He quickly diagnosed my problem and told me I should have had an operation in February.

This made me think hard about this year's racing and with the club choosing to cancel Anglesey in July I decided to rest until Croft.  Since then I've been to see a shoulder consultant at the hospital and I'm now awaiting MRI scans to determine the full extent of my injury.

With only three rounds of the season left and the uncertainty over my shoulder I have decided to cancel the remaining rounds to recovery fully.

So, sorry no Croft this weekend if anyone was planning on coming to watch.

I'll keep you posted on my progress.

Thanks for reading.
