The Mallorcan rider has been carrying out an extensive programme of recovery, which includes physiotherapy and rest. He tried to make a comeback at the Aragon GP last month, but the discomfort didn’t allow him to ride safely, and he withdrew from the subsequent three races. On Wednesday, October 5th he underwent electromyography to check the condition of the nerves and muscles around his damaged right ankle. These latest tests showed encouraging signs of recovery, and he will therefore attempt to ride in Australia. He is eager to return to the team, and Phillip Island circuit is one of his absolute favourites on the calendar.
