Ducati MotoGP rider Cal Crutchlow has confirmed he is ready to get back on track at this weekend’s Jerez race after missing the last round in Argentina recovering from injuries sustained in Austin.
The Briton suffered a fractured hand and dislocated right finger after crashing on the final lap of the American race, and admits that though there is still pain it will not prevent him from competing in Spain.
“My hand is getting better every day, but I still have some pain and it’s definitely going to be difficult to ride this weekend. I’ll try and see how it is from Friday and do the best job I can.” said Crutchlow in an interview with Dorna.
“Jerez is surely one of the toughest circuits to come back and ride at after my crash. It’s a really great track, and the crowd are great as well, but really I’m just excited about joining up with the team again and getting back on the bike.”
Crutchlow finished 5th for Yamaha Tech 3 at the 2013 race in Jerez.
