Italian Grand Prix winner Jason Crump is fighting against time as he prepares for the Scandinavian round of the 2006 FIM Speedway Grand Prix World Championship at Malilla in Sweden on August 12.

The world champion leader is seeing a leading British sports physiotherapist who specializes in treating foot injuries for athletes.

“I have been receiving treatment on a daily basis and the results are encouraging,” said Crump. “My heel is heavily bandaged and there is still quite a lot of pain particularly when I walk. The treatment has accelerated the healing process considerably and it is getting better every day. I hope by the end of the week I’ll be back to full fitness.”

Crump rode despite pain from a severe ankle injury at Longio, Italy and extended his lead in the World Championship to 57 points.

The Australian Ace uses K&N Engineering products. “I love K&N products, the K&N Filters are the best in the world,” said Crump. “I have solely used K&N products and never had a problem. K&N is the best for dirt track racing.”

With six of the ten rounds completed in the series, the 16-time Grand Prix winner said he wants things to go as well in the second half and they did for him in the first half.
