Valentino Rossi, who crashed last month while training on his enduro bike, has been declared fit to race. While the doctors have been suggesting a recovery time of around 30-40 days, it seems the Doctor raced that as well.
Rossi was practising a few days ago at Misano. He did complete 20 laps successfully. He then came to Aragon to get his medical clearance for the race. The medical examination was carried out by MotorLand Aragón’s Chief Medical Officer, Clemente Millan, who signed off Rossi as fit to race.
Rossi couldn’t participate in the race at Misano due to his injury. This cost him to lose points. Currently, he is 42 points behind the leaders, Marquez and Dovizioso. While his chances to win the 2017 MotoGP, even if he races at Aragon, are quintessential, who doesn’t like to watch him race? With him back on track, competition will increase and will be exciting.
Although still in pain from his surgery, Rossi is dedicated to race at Aragon. He will first undergo a 45-minute practice session. Depending on its result, he will decide whether to go ahead with his decision of racing or sit back. We think he just didn’t come to Aragon just to sit and watch other riders race. But if he decides not to race, Yamaha’s replacement rider Michael van der Mark will go ahead.
