MotoGP Jerez #2: Marquez, Crutchlow and Rins all passed fit

Reigning MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez, Cal Crutchlow and Alex Rins, who all broke something last weekend, have been passed fit to race at the second Jerez round.

All three have undergone a fitness test at the Andalucia track and will be able to start free practice one tomorrow morning.

Honda men Marquez and Crutchlow both underwent surgery in Barcelona on Tuesday for a fractured upper humerus and scaphoid respectively, while Suzuki’s Rins suffered a shoulder dislocation, a small fracture and muscle damage from his crash.


Marquez will try to ride in free practice one with team boss Alberto Puig explaining the situation at lunchtime today: "He knows how to ride this track so there is no meaning to ride Friday. It was important for Honda and the Repsol team to respect the rider's wish. I want to make clear that Honda never push the riders to race.

"Surgery went well. Originally Honda's position was to cancel this race but after we saw Marc's wish we came to an understanding. He will try on Saturday and depending on how he is feeling will try to race."
