CRUTCHLOW DECLARED FIT TO RACE FOR ROUND TWO IN JEREZ

The MotoGP class return to Jerez for the first back-to-back races in the sport’s history and Cal Crutchlow will attempt to push through the pain barrier to take part. The LCR Honda CASTROL rider underwent wrist surgery in Barcelona on Tuesday, but is still aiming to compete in the second round of the revised 2020 calendar this weekend.

The Briton was denied the chance to test himself in last Sunday’s Grand Prix in southern Spain after falling in the warm up session and sustaining a fractured scaphoid. Crutchlow, who came back to the paddock early this morning after his operation, was declared fit to race by Dorna’s Medical Director, Dr. Ángel Charte and will be back aboard his RC213V no. 35 tomorrow morning for the first practice of the weekend.
