Lorenzo gets thumbs-up before flying to Germany

Lorenzo gets thumbs-up before flying to Germany

This morning, Jorge Lorenzo left the Institut Dexeus, in Barcelona, after a last minute medical check. Last week, the young Spaniard underwent minor surgery as he injured the little finger of his right hand by crashing in Rio.

The Caja Madrid Derbi rider was examined by Dr Xavier Mir, before being given the green light to ride in Germany. Lorenzo now plans to take part in the first practice session before deciding whether he's fit enough to race.

"The injury healed steadily and Dr Mir told me I could to give it a shot and see for myself if I can race at the Sachsenring" explained the rider before leaving Spain.

"I cannot move the little finger too much, but hopefully, it won't affect my performance. I'm going there with the idea of racing, but I can't say anything for sure until I get back on the bike. In addition to the injury, I will have to cope with the fact that the Sachsenring is the shortest track of the calendar, and the race has more laps than any other, but you have to be able to overcome such difficulties."
