MotoGP: Baz aiming for Aragon return

1 of 1

Frenchman Loris Baz is looking to make a return to MotoGP this weekend at Aragon, as he recovers yet again from another injury in his incident-hit 2016 season.

The Avintia Ducati rider was caught up in the first lap turmoil at Silverstone, crashing out of the race alongside Pol Espargaró, damaging the foot that he injured earlier in the year when Alvaro Bautista took him out at Mugello.

“I’m not at my maximum, and the foot is still painful, but I think that I will be able to ride my bike and the doctors and my physiotherapist have the same opinion. I’ll get the final check with the doctors at the track on Thursday and I’ll take to the track on Friday and I’ll see how I feel on the bike.

“Since I crashed, I’ve been working constantly with my physio, with a lot of work in the swimming pool to regain motion in my foot. I improve steadily, but we have to see how I feel riding the bike.

“I look forward to complete a positive weekend at Aragon and try to get some points if possible, but my goal will be to get some feeling with the bike and get into the overseas triple in the best possible shape.”
