Video: Vermeulen talks about his early exit from Sepang test

Published: 14 January 2011

Chris Vermeulen has elected to return to Australia after completing just 12 flying laps on day one of a scheduled four day test in Sepang. The 28 year old Australian is still struggling with his right knee after undergoing full reconstructive surgery in July following his horrific Philip Island crash in March. 

The factory Kawasaki rider will miss the first round of official WSB testing in Portimao at the end of January but is still aiming to ride at the season opener in Australia at the end of February.
