Valentino Rossi set to test James Toseland's R1 in Brno?

Speculation is increasing at the Czech Republic World Superbike round that reigning MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi will test James Toseland’s factory R1 machine on Monday. Rossi is desperate to return from injury at next weekend’s German MotoGP clash at the Sachsenring and will use the test at the Brno circuit to further gauge his fitness.The Fiat Yamaha rider tested an...

The man could ride around and come in the points being last. Too early in my opinion, let the german round go and come back for Brno.

The guy is mental to come back so soon as now seems very possible at Sachsenring. I suppose this is what makes these guys so successful notwithstanding their incredible natural talent is the almost manic desire to race and win regardless of the very real danger to themselves. Should he return at Sachenring I believe he will not be too far of the pace of the other Aliens. What a dude, Go Vale.Ciao

It's Ok getting back early but, what happens if he falls and hurts his leg again? He should let it heal properly before trying to race again.  Top guy for trying though.

I hope he gives it more time to heal, coming back too early doesn't pay...look what happened to Doohan when he came back too early, he had a career ending accident & I wouldn't like to see that happen to such a successful rider as Rossi. Can't fault his committment for trying to get back quickly though.

Too early Vale

As much as I'd like to see the guy back, especially after way too many crap races this season, its gotta be too early, wouldn't like to see him on the floor again, leave it to Brno...please!

Its only a broken leg nothing too serious , he should ride ; at 50% he'll get above 8th place and wont be much of a risk. Doohans legs were mangled and were nearly amputated so not really of comparison with Rossi's break

It seems early but then again, this is a man who knows his history....Sheene, Mamola, Rainey etc, and of course Mickey D all rode with serious injuries. I wd not put it past him to give it a go and show up the young uns.

suffering from restless race syndrome

I guess Rossi's having a hard time getting a good night's rest lately.. Seems like he just can't stand being sidelined while Lorenzo is running away with the title.. I wonder if it was anyone else kicking ass like this if he would've tried to return this quickly, maybe Stoner....

With Stoner now confirmed, will rossi leave?? Most likey.. Rossi has done so much for my beloved Yamaha's that it will be very sad to see him go to the Duc. However, Spies can't move up to a factory ride unless Rossi moves on, so I guess I have to take the good with the bad because I see Spies eventually fighting for the championship against the best of em. Lorenzo ain't going anywhere and he's finally matured and improved enough to not trash the bike every other race. So we have a good team for years to come at Yamaha.I'm just gonna miss the Doctor, but Its gonna be nice to watch him battle against Spies and Lorenzo, just bittersweet when he wins/loses against them.

Here's to the 'alien' population increasing to 6.

not safe

Check the pictures from the Misano test - he had to be helped on and off the bike onto a pair of crutches. Surely there should be a safety rule that if a rider can't stand up and walk on his own then he's not allowed to race? If there's a  pile-up during the race and he falls, how is he going to get out of the way when someone else's bike comes tumbling towards him? I'd love to see Rossi come back so soon but I think it's a slightly daft idea when he can't even stand up.

I am very fond of Valentino. But I think it will be soon to come and compete. But I want to see him race in Germany that I came up with the whole family to see him
