Video: Valentino Rossi on track on a Ducati

Published: 31 January 2011

Valentino Rossi has returned to the track for the first time since his shoulder operation, and you can see how it went it this video showing the Italian legend on a Ducati 1198 Superbike.

Just 73 days after an operation on his right shoulder, Rossi was able to ride at the Misano circuit in Italy, and Ducati has released a video of the session. It's good news and a promising sign for the forthcoming MotoGP championship, as Rossi's opening press conference as a Factory Ducati rider was dominated by his concerns about recovery from the operation, which repaired serious tendon and ligament damage.
