Hollie Doyle hopes to return to riding sooner than anticipated.
As she continues to heal from an elbow injury, Hollie Doyle anticipates returning to action in a few weeks.
On January 17, Doyle fell from The Perfect Crown at Wolverhampton and sustained ligament damage in addition to a dislocated elbow.
The rider who broke the record has to wait four to five weeks before she can ride in races again, but she still hopes to be back sooner than that.
“I saw a specialist yesterday and he said things couldn’t be any better for the stage we are at,” she told Sky Sports Racing on Friday.
“I’m hoping within the next few weeks I’ll be back on track.
“I dislocated my elbow and ruptured both ligaments around my elbow – and fractured it as well – but thankfully it put itself back into place which was good and I haven’t had to have it operated on.
“I didn’t think it was broken, but I knew something wasn’t right. I’d never dislocated anything before and I had a sicky feeling so I was surprised when I found out I’d done the damage I did. It could have been a lot worse.
“I’ve been in Oaksey House everyday and they’ve been fantastic. The day after the fall I was there for physio, physically I was fine so I was keen to keep my fitness up.
“I’m probably their worst nightmare as I’m trying to force it, but time is a healer.
“Worst case scenario is another four or five weeks off, but I’m hoping to be back sooner than that.”
