Kiwi Josh Coppins is no sitting idle after injuring his shoulder at the GP of Loket two weeks ago and throwing everything he can into mending himself in an effort to resume his place at the head of the field in the chase for the 2007 MX1 World Motocross Championship. "I‰Ûªve been really busy getting treatment," Coppins said. "First I was in Ipswich in England getting laser, magnetic and oxygen chamber treatment It was three times a day for three days but well worth it. "From there I came back to Belgium and had the weekend at home. I started doing some gym work Saturday and went to Namur for the GP on Sunday. I did my autograph session for sponsors and spoke a lot with my team because the guys have been a bit down since the crash. It was hard to watch my points lead go down and just not be out there racing because the track looked cool, so I went home and watched Superbikes on TV instead. "The first I knew of the results was when a journalist phoned me for a comment on the results. "Since the weekend I‰Ûªve been getting more movement into the shoulder and I‰Ûªve now started doing exercises in the swimming pool to get the movement back. I‰Ûªve also been going to Germany a lot to visit a naturopath to help with the blood flow and healing by getting acupuncture and massage. Yesterday I went to the hospital to see my surgeon Dr. Claes and bought a new magnetic healing system known as an ‰Û÷ortho pulse‰Ûª machine. I sleep with it and use it 14 hours a day! "I‰Ûªm trying my best to be ready for Ireland but I won‰Ûªt know how good I‰Ûªll be there until I see Dr. Claes for another scan this Monday," Coppins concluded. Coppins still has 43 points up his sleeve with three rounds remaining. Main Photo: Josh signing posters
