SHEFFIELD racer Kyle Howarth has revealed he has gone under the knife to correct his troublesome shoulder.

But he’s also confirmed he expects to be fully fit for any racing which may take place in October – including a British Final.

Said Howarth: “I’ve been doing some manual work with no racing and I must have aggravated the shoulder I damaged at Eastbourne last year.

“It actually dislocated a few times so I decided to go for the surgery a fortnight ago. I had to go private because of the waiting list for operations right now.

“The surgery was latarjet shoulder surgery. The crazy thing is I never had any problems during the winter but then it started dislocating. I knew if I could get it done I would be 100 per cent fit and raring to go for next season.

“The recovery time from the operation is between eight and 10 weeks, and next week I’ll be in the gym starting my fitness work again.

“I want to be back on a bike in mid-late September so if there are a few meetings in October I can be at the start line ready to race.

“I know I’ve done the right thing and I’ll be back strong.”

Sheffield’s league season was scrapped two weeks ago but some clubs have stated they would like to run some open meetings in October.

Belle Vue have already stated they would like to stage the Peter Craven Memorial and the sport’s bosses are keen to do a British Final when crowds are permitted into venues.

Sheffield have confirmed it is highly unlikely bikes will roar at Owlerton until next March now.
