LONDON, England – Spaniard Dani Pedrosa is planning to compete in Sunday’s (Nov 10) MotoGP weekend – the last of the season – though it’s only a few weeks since his big fall in Japan.
He broke a collarbone, a leg and a foot in the crash.
Reuters has reported, from a statement issued by the team, that Pedrosa’s doctors had agreed to the return.
The statement included this from the rider: “These past three weeks haven’t been easy because of the pain, especially immediately after the operation, and because I missed racing at some of my favourite tracks.”
‘HAPPY TO GET BACK ON TRACK’
He added that his healing improved day-by-day under a rehabilitation programme. Pedrosa explained: “The thought of recovering in time for Valencia was a boost that helped during tougher moments.
“I’ll be happy to get back to racing.”
Pedrosa has won three MotoGP races at Valencia.
