Miller: “I’ve been working hard on my rehabilitation”

Miller: “I’ve been working hard on my rehabilitation”

A week off from racing has allowed Jack Miller to focus on improving his injured ankle and be declared fit to race.

A heavy fall during practice in Austin aggravated Jack Miller’s pre-season ankle injury and forced the Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider to sit out the race. Had this happened in Argentina it may have very well forced him to miss two races but the week off between Austin and Jerez gave Miller a change to focus on healing. He decided to remain in America to work with doctors there in order to be as fit as possible, while he’s not quite at 100%, he should be able to race and continue to learn the Honda RC213V.

Miller’s record in Jerez is mixed, in the 2015 MotoGP™ World Championship race he only managed 20th place but in 2014 he managed a solid fourth in the Moto3™ round while battling for victory. Given his injury, it’s unlikely he’ll be able to battle for fourth place again but a finish in the points is certainly a possibility.

Jack Miller: “It’s never good to have to sit out a race through injury, as I had to in Texas, so I’m looking forward to getting back on the bike in Jerez. After Austin I stayed in the US, where I’ve been working hard on my rehabilitation with Doctor Andy Walshe, ready for the European phase of the season. The next few weeks are tough, with races coming one after the other, starting this weekend at the Spanish Grand Prix.”
