After ten weeks of his continuing injury break, Pol Espargaro gives an update. The Spaniard is targeting the Italian Grand Prix for his comeback.

After a serious accident in Portimao, Pol Espargaro ends up in intensive care for four days. A Lung contusion, rib and vertebrae injuries, and a broken jaw meant that the Catalan could take liquid food only for about four weeks resulting in him losing more than nine kilos.

The 2013 Moto2 World Champion has now given a new update on his injury status to Spanish broadcaster TV3. Surprisingly, Espargaro is already planning his comeback to MotoGP.

“Next week I will undergo a checkup. Then the doctors will tell me how it looks. If they give me the green light for Mugello, I’ll make my way to Mugello.”

“If that’s not possible, I’ll still have to skip this race and will try to return for the next one or the one after that.” For Espargaro, the worst days of his injury break seem to be over.

After several pain-inducing weeks, he said he is “virtually pain-free” and that his recovery training is in full swing.

“If the day had 45 hours, I would use them all. In the morning I do the training sessions in the gym, and then the whole rehabilitation process follows. I have four or five machines at home and spend half an hour or 45 minutes on each.”

The Spaniard is eager to get back on the bike having seen what the RC16 is capable of. Most recently, the Red Bull-KTM factory riders had taken podiums and sprint wins. In addition, Pol’s teammate and rookie Augusto Fernández shone in fourth at Le Mans.

“I’m really looking forward to my return, more than ever. The bike is working really well and I’m looking forward to racing as soon as possible.”
