Hules fit to ride after horror practice crash

Czech Republic rider Jaroslav Hules somehow emerged unscathed from an horrific crash in yesterday's 125 first qualifying and plans to contest the second session on Saturday afternoon. `Jarda´, who looked set to take victory in the first race at Suzuka a week ago before crashing out mid-race, was flipped over the top of his Aprilia machine when going through a high speed right hander.

`It was a nasty crash but I was lucky,´ he explained to motograndprix.com. `I hurt my hand and hit my head but fortunately there was no serious damage. This morning my hand hurts a lot and I will have to see how it manages over the first practice session. Hopefully it will be okay and I will be able to qualify for tomorrow´s race´.
