Only , 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.

Walking without the aid of crutches, de Puniet looks fairly mobile for someone who broke his leg only three weeks ago. Lapping in the 1’20’s, de Puniet told the following:

“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!
