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.

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

Posting a photo with his surgeons on Facebook, he wrote: “I would like to thank these two doctors on a great job! Today I got the all clear.

“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.”
