Jack Miller declared fit for Phillip Island Testing

Posted:

Jack Miller will return to action next week at Phillip Island, where he will test alongside his Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS teammate, Tito Rabat.

Miller was forced to sit out the first MotoGP test of 2016 at Sepang after fracturing the tibia and fibula in his right leg in a training accident but the 21-year-old Australian has been passed fit to ride at Phillip Island by doctors, after completing an intensive rehabilitation program following the injury.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm itching to get back on the bike after such a long lay off and I don‰Ûªt think we could have chosen a better track at which to return than Phillip Island given my condition," MIller enthused.

"With only four right turns it means I‰Ûªm not going to be working my injured right leg so hard, although it‰Ûªs still going to be a tough test. I‰Ûªve been training hard here in Australia and working with my local physiotherapist to reduce the swelling in the leg, to give me more mobility on the bike, and it‰Ûªs looking good. I‰Ûªm looking forward to putting some laps in on the bike, getting a feel for the new electronics and seeing how the tyres have improved since Valencia.‰Û
