Avintia Ducati’s Loris Baz will return to action at the Sachsenring after a long layoff with injury.
The lanky Frenchman still has some pain in his right foot but says he will not be taking any risks at the short German circuit.
“I’m really happy about coming back after my injury. My foot is much better now, it’s not at 100% and still painful, but I can’t wait any more to jump back on my bike. My aim for this weekend is to get the feeling back and then to try to ride the best possible race on Sunday,” said Baz.
“I don’t want to take risks this weekend, my goal will be just to ride my bike and to get back on the pace. We’ll have a test in Austria after the race, and I’m sure these two days will be really helpful for us. I’m looking forward to see my bike and to try the improvements made by Pirro with the electronics. I’m eager to get back after watching the last two races from my sofa.”
