Rossi declared fit!

Italian declared fit to ride in Aragon MotoGP just 21 days after suffering major injury.

Well, it looks like they have rebuilt him. Valentino Rossi has just been declared fit enough to ride – at least in the Free Practice sessions – at this weekend’s Aragon MotoGP.

The full statement from Yamaha is below:

Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider Valentino Rossi has been declared fit to ride in this weekend’s Gran Premio Movistar de Aragón.

ALCAÑIZ (SPAIN), 21ST SEPTEMBER 2017

The Movistar Yamaha MotoGP Team will start round 14 of the MotoGP World Championship with their original rider line-up.

This afternoon Valentino Rossi successfully completed a mandatory medical examination carried out by MotorLand Aragón’s Chrief Medical Officer, Clemente Millan. He declared that the nine-time World Champion is fit to ride, 21 days after sustaining a leg injury.

The Italian will take part in the FP1 session tomorrow.

How he will manage after tomorrow’s session is anyone’s guess of course – but if the nine-time World Champion can manage FP1 in anger tomorrow, then it’s hard to see anyone stopping him from racing on Sunday.

It’s an unbelievable comeback from what by-all-accounts was a horrendous double fracture to the right leg; a crash that happened only 21 days ago.

    In what other sport do men break multiple bones at once and return to the field 21 days later? This is the real-man sport. Get ’em Rossi.
