Valentino Rossi has been declared fit to take part in this weekend’s MotoGP race at Motorland Aragon in Spain just three weeks after breaking his leg in a training accident.

Bidding for his 10th world title in 2017, Yamaha confirmed at the end of last month that Rossi had suffered a leg break while training, forcing the Italian to undergo surgery.

Rossi was forced to miss the latest MotoGP race in San Marino, but made his return to a bike earlier this week with some private test running at Misano.

Rossi announced on Wednesday his intention to take part in the Aragon Grand Prix weekend, with medical staff at the circuit on Thursday passing him fit to race.

Rossi will hit the track for the first time on Friday morning in opening practice at Motorland Aragon.
