Gibernau back for Barcelona.

Sete Gibernau has confirmed that he will return to MotoGP action at his home Catalunya round on June 12-14.

The Grupo Francesco Hernando rider fractured his left collarbone in a practice accident at Le Mans and the injury also forced him to miss the entire Italian Grand Prix weekend.

However the 36-year-old, returning to MotoGP this season after two years in retirement, will be back on track for round six.

Gibernau's last MotoGP appearance at Barcelona saw him tangle with Ducati Marlboro team-mate Loris Capirossi into turn one, sending the Spaniard into a somersault (pictured) that brought down Capirossi, Marco Melandri, Dani Pedrosa, Randy de Puniet and John Hopkins.

Sete broke his same left collarbone in the incident.

Looking back to that day, it was the day that maybe took away Loris' best chance ever of taking the title, when he was at full strength that year he was really hot, a sad day for Ducati
