Lorenzo confirmed for Le Mans

Lorenzo confirmed for Le Mans

Doctor Xavier Mir has rubberstamped Jorge Lorenzo´s participation in this weekend´s round of MotoGP action, confirming their initial expectations.

Fiat Yamaha´s Jorge Lorenzo will definitely play a part in this weekend´s Alice Grand Prix de France, having been given the all clear from Doctor Xavier Mir in his final pre-Le Mans check up.

The decision to officially permit the 21 year-old to race comes as little surprise, with Dr. Mir having said himself that there would be as much chance of a breakage of any other bone as there was of re-injuring the fractured astralagus picked up in his Shanghai highside. Lorenzo has been undergoing physiotherapy on this and his other injuries, and said in the run-up to Le Mans that he would be present despite less than 100% fitness.

`Not enough time has passed yet for the injuries to fully heal, but Jorge´s pain threshold will allow him to compete without too much risk this weekend,´ commented Doctor Mir.
