Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi has been declared fit to compete in the Aragon MotoGP race this weekend. The nine-time world champion was injured in a motocross training accident in late August.
Rossi missed the San Marino GP which was held two weekends ago and was doubtful to compete in the Aragon GP.
Rossi tested a road-going motorcycle at the Misano circuit before undergoing a medical examination. Aragon's Chief Medical Officer, Clemente Millan declared that Rossi is fit to ride, 21 days after suffering a leg injury.
The Italian rider will take part in the first free practice session of the Aragon GP. But it is still unclear that whether he will take part in the entire race. Rossi said that he would get a clear picture of his fitness after riding the M1 (MotoGP bike).
Currently, Rossi is in fourth place in the rider's championship, 42 points behind the joint leaders Marc Marquez and Andrea Dovizioso. If Rossi steps out of the race, he will be replaced by World Superbike rider Michael van der Mark.
Valentino Rossi has made an early comeback despite suffering serious injuries. He will take part in the FP1 of Aragon GP this weekend. But there are uncertainties about his participation in the entire race. But it is unlikely that Rossi could challenge for the title as his rivals are way ahead of him with just few races left in the season.
