MotoGP: Valentino Rossi Passes Medical Test To Make Aragon GP

Editor@Throttle|Updated: September 22, 2017 8:59

Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi has been cleared to compete in the Aragon MotoGP race this weekend, following a medical check-up on Thursday. Rossi will use Friday practice to assess whether he will be able to contest for the remaining weekend. His return in just 21 days is nothing short of remarkable, after the Yamaha rider broke his leg in a motocross training accident. The immediate result was Rossi missing out on the San Marino Grand Prix at Misano, where the team chose to contest with only Maverick Vinales, instead of two riders.


In a statement, Yamaha said, "This afternoon [Thursday] Valentino Rossi successfully completed a mandatory medical examination carried out by MotorLand Aragon's Chief 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." With Andrea Dovizios and Marc Marquez tied up on the points table with 199 points, Valentino Rossi is a distant fourth by 42 points. His teammate Maverick Vinales sits closer to the title in third place.
