Aussie racer Jason Doyle says he’s “ready to go full gas” after making a successful recovery from shoulder surgery and hit back at Polish media claims branding him “lazy” over his rehabilitation efforts.

The Newcastle-born racer is looking forward to a well-earned trip Down Under next month after being given the all-clear by shoulder surgeon Dr Aleix Vidal in Barcelona.

He revealed he’ll be continuing his rehabilitation in the UK with the support of former Norwich City Football Club physio Tim Sheppard.

“I won't be going back to Poland for rehabilitation because I have one of the best physiotherapists (Tim Sheppard – Norwich football physio) and in January will be going back to Aussie to get some sun :)

“So as you will see, some journalists love to write b … Sometimes if you ask the rider injured about his situation, you will get your article more correct.

“See you all in 2017. Merry Xmas and have a safe and Happy New Year!!! Love Jason.”
