Only 22 days after his crash at Sachsenring, Randy de Puniet is back on two wheels with his fractured tibia and fibula. Taking some laps at Circuit d’Ales on a Honda CBR1000RR, de Puniet’s track time is presumably to see if the Frenchman will be ready for the Czech GP this weekend.
“Okay, it’s not as bad as I thought. The first run was a little difficult because you feel a little pain when you take knocks on the fracture, but the second went better I become mobile and in the end I didn’t feel too much pain. You always think you’re going to, but until you are on the bike, you can’t really know. I’m relieved and I think it will go to Brno, even though I’m not 100%.”
De Puniet will have to go through the formality of getting race approval from the Chief Medical Officer at Brno, but considering they let a guy with a hole in his leg ride around in Germany, de Puniet should have no problem getting permission to race on Sunday. Bon Chance Randy!
