Following a remarkable recovery from his broken leg suffered at the opening race of the season in Qatar, Álvaro Bautista has been cleared to race this weekend for Rizla Suzuki.

After a thorough examination at the Estoril circuit, the Spaniard will return to action in tomorrows first Free Practice session, for a personal assessment on weather or not he will continue for the weekend.

“I am really pleased I have been given the ok to ride, but I must now see what it feels like to get on a MotoGP bike.” said Bautista. “I have done a bit of Supermotard riding and that felt good, but that is nothing like riding the GSV-R. I will see how things go tomorrow morning and we will make a decision about the rest of the weekend after that.”

If Álvaro cannot continue with the weekend, then Nobuatsu Aoki, Rizla’s test rider is available to deputise.
