MotoGP: Pecco Bagnaia cleared to return to action in Misano
Pramac Ducati rider Francesco Bagnaia will return to action at this weekend’s San Marino Grand Prix at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli following his Czech Republic crash which ruled him out of three Grands Prix.
The Italian crashed in the first free practice session of the weekend in the Czech Republic, sustaining a tibia fracture. The former Moto2 Champion was replaced by Michele Pirro but will be back in the saddle of his Pramac machine ahead of his home Grand Prix on the Adriatic coast.
The Italian currently lies 18th in the MotoGP World Championship but has shown serious pace throughout the 2020 season by putting himself in podium contention before suffering a technical problem that ended his Andalucian Grand Prix.
The 23-year-old returns at a crucial stage of his MotoGP career as speculation continues to circle around Bagnaia and the factory Ducati seat left vacant by Andrea Dovizioso.
Bagnaia will be on track along with his fellow MotoGP riders for free practice one, kicking off at 09:55 local time on Friday morning.
