Hodgeson really struggling in return to BSB

Neil Hodgson's troublesome return to the British Superbike Championship suffered another setback during morning warm-up for today's two races at Brands Hatch, the former champion suffering a nasty accident.

Having qualified a disappointing 22nd for what will be his first BSB race in ten years, Hodgson was attempting to find more speed during the short morning session when he high-sided the Motorpoint Yamaha out of Graham Hill Bend.

Landing heavily on the shoulder he injured a motocross accident last year, Hodgson was taken to the medical centre for checks, but is expected to be fit in time for the races.

Pole sitter Ryuichi Kiyonari was quickest in warm-up, ahead of fellow front row sitter Tommy Hill, Tommy Bridewell and Yukio Kagayama.

His teammate, Dan Linfoot, fresh off of 600's has qualified 4th fastest!!!!!!!!

It's not the best bike in the paddock but I didn't expect to see him struggle so much especially at Brands Hatch

He's a former World Superbike Champion. Came over to AMA for the last few years, struggled here while he has in AMA and went back to BSB and is apparently struggling there too...

Sorry to be the barer of bad news Mike:

http://www.worldsbk.com/en/news/late...n-retires.html

Quote:
Britain's Neil Hodgson, who won the 2003 World Superbike championship, has been forced to retire from the sport following a nasty shoulder injury he picked up last year. The 36-year-old Englishman from Burnley won the title on a Fila Ducati 999 in 2003, beating team-mate Ruben Xaus, before heading off to MotoGP and then AMA Superbike, where he again raced on a factory Ducati and then a Honda.


After last year's motocross crash, in which he severely damaged his left shoulder, Hodgson returned to British Superbikes this year on a Yamaha but then aggravated his injury in a high-side crash during practice for the opening round at Brands Hatch. He has now opted to retire from racing for good.


"That's it. I'm hanging my leathers up but I'm thinking positive about the whole thing," said Hodgson. "It's been a whirlwind 20 years and I've had such a good career. I don't regret a thing."


Hodgson raced 147 times in World Superbike from 1996 to 2003, for a variety of teams, including Ducati Racing ADVF, Kawasaki Racing, GSE, HM Plant Racing and Ducati Fila, picking up 16 victories and the 2003 title.
