Rossi targeting Sunday return

ROME, July 15 – Italian motorcycling star Valentino Rossi, who broke his leg on June 5, will probably ride in the German Grand Prix on Sunday, Fiat Yamaha announced.The circuit’s chief medical officer will have the final say Thursday on allowing the 31-year-old nine-times world champion to take part in the Sachsenring event, Fiat Yamaha said in a statement on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old’s return after a six-month absence will be far earlier than expected, as the surgeon who operated on his double fracture had expected a convalescence of up to five months.

Rossi, who crashed in practice for last month’s Italian MotoGP, carried out private test runs in Misano, central Italy, last week and in Brno, the Czech Republic, on Monday.

If he is barred from taking part, Japanese rider Wataru Yoshikawa will take his place, the statement said.
