Hodgson confirmed fit for Italy

Neil Hodgson has confirmed that he will race at the Gran Premio Cinzano d'Italia this weekend despite breaking two ribs in a crash at Le Mans three weeks ago.

The former World Superbike Champion has been aided by an extra weekend of rest in between the third and fourth rounds of the MotoGP World Championship and says he is looking forward to getting back on his bike despite not feeling 100%. "Actually, I feel much better, although I am not completely recovered yet," commented the British rider.

"I can't wait to get back to action and I'm really hopeful of doing well in Italy, although obviously I won't know how fit I am until I ride my Ducati again. But I feel optimistic and I think this little rest has been good for me."
