MotoGP: Pol Espargarò set to return to action soon, but it won't be at Mugello


Almost 3 months after his horrific fall at Portimao, Pol Espargarò's conditions are clearly improving and the time to get back on his GasGas is getting closer. The goal was to return to racing at Mugello this weekend, but unfortunately that won't be possible. The Spaniard still has a small problem to solve: an edema on a vertebra that needs treatment.

For this reason he will not be in Italy, even if the Tech3 team hopes to welcome him into the garage very soon, perhaps at Sachsenring or Assen, the two Grands Prix that will take place immediately after the Italian one.

At Mugello, therefore, Jonas Folger will once again replace Espargarò.

“I was really looking forward to getting back on my bike but, as I said from the beginning, the final decision would be made for me by the doctors and they asked me to wait a few more days explained Pol My original plan was to return for one of these next three races before the summer break and this continues to be the idea. The most important thing is to be physically ready, and this call means I have a few more days to keep working at home and arrive in the best form possible and as soon as possible. I’m feeling really good and I’m really motivated. I hope to see the team and everyone in the sport, and for sure the fans, as soon as I can.”
