Despite a horrendous injury just weeks ago, Valentino Rossi is eyeing up a return to Aragón this weekend.
After sustaining displaced fractures of the tibia and fibula of his right leg a little over three weeks ago, Valentino Rossi is already back on his Yamaha YZF-R1M and considering a return to MotoGP duties this weekend in Aragón.
After riding his first few laps around the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli earlier this week, he was back on the bike again yesterday to continue with what Yamaha are referring to as ‘physical tests’.
During the two-hour, private session, Rossi is said to have completed 20 laps in total and spoke of ‘an improved feeling and a more positive impression’ when compared to the rider the day before.
Rossi, his staff and Yamaha are due to make an announcement with regards to his fitness and ability to ride at the MotoGP this weekend within the coming days.
