Repsol Honda’s Jorge Lorenzo will try to contest this weekend’s Misano MotoGP despite having to withdraw from the recent test after only a handful of laps.
The Spaniard is still recovering from fractured vertebrae and although he managed to finish the Silverstone race, testing at Misano a few days later proved too much.
“Each day I am feeling stronger and able to train harder than the previous day and the time between races has helped,” said Lorenzo.
“I am looking forward to getting back on the bike and seeing how I feel physically on the RC213V. Despite not completing the full test, we were able to find some good information to be able to start the weekend well.
“In the past Misano has been a good circuit for me so I am hopeful that this weekend we can continue to close the gap.”
