Checa on road to recovery

Carlos Checa is well on the way to recovering from a neck injury suffered in Jerez and aggravated in Qatar.

The Yamaha Tech3 rider is currently being treated at the CAR facility in Sant Cugat, where he has seen much improvement to his damaged nerve day by day. The speedy recovery will give Checa much optimism as he prepares for the Grand Prix of Turkey in under ten days time.

The Catalan continues to train at his usual pace, although with the adaptation of exercises in order to work around his injury. Next Friday will be the big test for Checa, as he takes to the M1 for the first day of practice in Istanbul.

Checa has been amongst the points in both of this season's Grands Prix, with a 13th place in Jerez and 12th in Qatar.
