Avintia Ducati's French rider Loriz Baz is aiming to return for Motorland Aragon GP. Baz damaged his foot in the first lap of Silverstone GP after having an incident with Pol Espargaro. The same foot that he injured earlier in the year at Mugello when he collided with Alvaro Bautista.
In this season Baz has suffered several injuries and 2016 seems to be not good for him. Baz is currently in the 21st position in the world standings and is 57 points down on his teammate Hector Barbera. He was replaced by Xavi fores for Misano GP.
Prior to Aragon GP Baz said, "I'm not at my maximum, and the foot is still painful, but I think that I will be able to ride my bike and the doctors and my physiotherapist have the same opinion. I'll get the final check with the doctors at the track on Thursday and I'll take to the track on Friday and I'll see how I feel on the bike.
"Since I crashed, I've been working constantly with my physio, with a lot of work in the swimming pool to regain motion in my foot. I improve steadily, but we have to see how I feel riding the bike.
"I look forward to complete a positive weekend at Aragon and try to get some points if possible, but my goal will be to get some feeling with the bike and get into the overseas triple in the best possible shape."
