Currently in Barcelona, Interwetten Honda test rider Hiroshi Aoyama is pleased to report that he continues to make a speedy recovery following his warm-up crash at Silverstone which resulted in a fractured T12 vertebra.
The accident took place on the morning of the British Grand Prix last month and the Japanese now continues the rehabilitation programme which is bringing him back to full fitness levels.
“I feel I’m getting better every day,” he explained to the official MotoGP website. “I have started training in the swimming pool and also a little bit with my arms in the gym. I can feel my progression.
“I would like to try the bike, because I see the others racing every weekend and feel I want to try, but I have to be careful because the bone I broke is very important.”
Attending regular training sessions at the Catalan capital’s Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I, the 250cc World Champion’s confidence continues to rise. “I think my arms and legs are almost as they were before but my back is maybe at 70 or 80 percent, so not 100 percent yet,” he continued to explain.
“When I do some exercise I always need the support corset, so when I can exercise without that I will be at more or less 90 percent and then I can start to ride the bike.”
