RNF confirm Oliveira and Fernandez are set for an Italian Grand Prix return

The CryptoDATA RNF MotoGP Team have confirmed that both of their riders will be back in action this weekend at Mugello.

After a torrid start to the season Miguel Oliveira will try to take part this weekend after suffering injuries in Portugal and Spain that have sidelined him for two Grand Prix weekends so far this season. When the Portuguese rider has competed he has been in good form and has challenged for podiums.

Raul Fernandez suffered arm pump at the Spanish Grand Prix and went under the knife before the French Grand Prix. However, the Spaniard was not fully fit at Le Mans so pulled out before the races. This weekend will be his comeback after being in recovery mode.


The Portuguese and Spanish rider will still have to pass a fitness test ahead of the Italian Grand Prix but the satellite Aprilia riders are aiming to be back on track this weekend.

Miguel Oliveira: “I’m really, really looking forward to go to Mugello. For sure now the biggest question mark is how I’m going to be physically able to handle a tough track like this on the MotoGP bike. The last few days, I felt an improvement, so hopefully that can be enough for me to arrive and be competitive. That’s the main target. I know that I need more experience with the bike and I need more races, but at this time it’s a priority to come back strong and at 100%. I will go to Mugello with that in mind and hopefully we can turn it into a good weekend. I’m looking forward to see all the team again.”

Raul Fernandez: “I’m really happy to be back in Mugello. We had three weekends off, which was good for my arm. I had time to recover and time to prepare myself physically. This weekend I don’t want to expect something special. First, we have to see how my arm is working. If all is well, we will of course try to do the best and also enjoy, which is my principal goal. I’m curious to see if the arm will give me any trouble after these first four tricky rounds, where my arm was causing quite many problems.”
