Rossi reports 'improved feeling' at Misano
19 September 2017 – Valentino Rossi reported an "improved feeling" and a "more positive impression" as he tested for the second day in a row at Misano, in a bid to assess his fitness.
On Monday, the Yamaha rider returned to the track just two-and-a-half weeks after sustaining fractures to his right leg in an enduro crash, completing a handful of laps before rain disrupted the run.
He continued the trial on the YZF-R1M at 15:30 local time on Tuesday and, during a two-hour private session, "successfully" managed to complete 20 laps.
Rossi will undergo a medical examination on Wednesday to determine whether he will be able to make a comeback attempt at this weekend's Aragón Grand Prix.
Should he return, Friday's first practice session would come just 22 days after he sustained his injuries, with doctors recommending a rest period of 30 to 40 days.
World Superbike rider Michael van der Mark has been named as Rossi's replacement.
