Just five months after the training accident that caused her a double vertebral fracture, former SSP300 world champion Ana Carrasco is ready to get back on her bike and start preparing for the 2021 season.

The 23-year-old Spaniard is back ‘fit’ in an incredibly short period of time, and is eager to kick off the first round of the WorldSSP300 championship season, currently set for mid-spring due to the Covid-19 situation.

“Of course I feel super happy to be back on the bike. In reality, five months has seemed like five years to me! I love riding, so to be back with my team is for me the perfect situation. I am motivated and happy – said Carrasco - I have been listening a lot to my doctor and now he says it is OK to ride. I am excited to be “bike ready” and to get back on my Ninja 400 for Winter testing. Now it is time for me and my Ninja to get back into shape. I have a great team to support me and had so many good wishes from fans when I was recovering. My head is in a positive place and really soon I hope to be back to full riding fitness.”

Her Kawasaki Ninja 400 has been prepared in pre-season colours by the Provec team and her team is ready to welcome her into the Barcelona garage for the first test session.
