Rossi bruised but not seriously injured after motocross accident

Rossi bruised but not seriously injured after motocross accident

The Fiat Yamaha rider suffered no serious injuries in the training fall and will take part in the Grand Prix of Japan next weekend.

Valentino Rossi has escaped with minor injuries after a fall in a motocross training exercise on Thursday near Pesaro.

At first the reigning World Champion did not feel any discomfort, but on Friday morning some pain in his back meant that Rossi opted to have a medical check-up.

An X-Ray confirmed that the 31 year-old Italian had sustained some bruising, but also ruled out any injuries that would prevent him from riding in the Grand Prix of Japan, to be held at the Motegi circuit from April 23rd-25th.
