Sixteen days from the operation to fix the broken right medial malleolus – which revealed a further fracture of the heel bone – Jorge Martin has resumed training in order to try and take part in the upcoming Czech Grand Prix, which takes place at Brno on the first weekend of August.

Despite still unable to put any weight on the injured foot, the rider of Team Del Conca Gresini Moto3 is splitting his time between gym, swimming pool and physio. Currently in Valencia, the young Spaniard will soon go back to Madridm where next Monday he will undergo another MRI scan to check the progress of his recovery.

Jorge Martin will then head to Brno to undergo the necessary medical examination on Thursday 3 August, which will determine whether he is fit to ride his Honda NSF250RW machine around the technical Czech circuit.


“Things are slowly getting better. After 14 days from surgery I started using the static bike and go to the gym in order not to lose muscle mass, while soon I will start with swimming. The idea is to recover as quickly as possible and get on track at Brno. Right now I’m in Valencia with my physiotherapist. Obviously, after this type of surgery I’m still unable to walk, but we’ll get there. My hope is that I will be able to race in Czech Republic – even if my foot will still hurt. Before then, however, I will need to pass the pre-race medical evaluation and see where we are.”
