18 days after suffering a double leg fracture in a training accident, nine-time MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi has made a quick return to action.
The 38-year old, who is fourth in the standings, 42 points behind leader Marc Marquez with five rounds to go, will decide on Wednesday whether to compete at the Aragon Grand Prix in Spain.
His team, Movistar Yamaha revealed in a statement yesterday: “As today’s riding session was cut short due to the change in weather, the evaluation of Rossi’s physical condition was inconclusive.”
“He will decide by the end of Wednesday, 20 September, whether he will attempt to take part in this weekend’s Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon.”
Movistar Yamaha also revealed that Rossi managed a couple of laps at the Marco Simoncelli Circuit in Italy.
