Cadwell Park signifies the return of Jordan Rushby
In 1975 the motorcycle legend, Barry Sheene, suffered significant injuries including broken bones aplenty in a huge crash at Daytona. Barry proceeded to begin one of his greatest comebacks, from what could have ended his season, 49 days later at a little old race circuit called Cadwell Park. Barry went on to lead the race before retiring before the finish. This earmarked his comeback and the beginning of his journey to win two 500cc world titles.
52 years later the Thundersport GB army rolled into one of the most exciting circuits in the country as the King of the Mountain bank holiday weekender began at Cadwell Park. Worlds apart the story told here strikes a similar resemblance to the journey that Barry Sheene took all those years ago. This time the rider is Jordan Rushby, a young aspiring talent with a focus to be the best he can be and reach the very top of Motorcycle racing. Jordan entered Cadwell Park following two race weekends that resulted in multiple injuries and hospital care which set him back in points but could easily have ended the year prematurely. Significantly Jordan was passed fit to compete at Cadwell but still in the early stages of recovery from his second fractured spine in as many years ! Not the most simplest of injuries to brush aside !!
