Injured de Puniet heads to Brno.

Randy de Puniet, the top satellite Honda rider in the MotoGP World Championship standings, has confirmed that he will try to ride in this weekend's Czech Republic Grand Prix at Brno, despite a recent ankle fracture.

The LCR Honda rider had a screw inserted into his left ankle after a motocross accident just under two weeks ago, but believes a rehabilitation programme with the Clinica Mobile will enable him to ride at round eleven.

“Immediately after the surgery I was discouraged and thought I would have not been able to race in Brno,” admitted Randy, who claimed third place in the British Grand Prix just before his accident. “But thanks to the rehabilitation programme my ankle is improving day by day. I can easily move it and I will be fit for the race.

“Brno is one of my favourite race tracks and the good placements we gained in the first part of the season have given us more incentives to be in the front,” added the 28-year-old Frenchman.

de Puniet is currently eighth in the MotoGP World Championship standings, having already scored 13 points more than during the whole of last season.

Skinny - difference between hayden and de Puniet is: Since Hayden won championship the poor guy couldnt even blow his nose without some form of criticism. de Puniet because of his performances this year so far will be seen as being gusty for even trying. It is unfortunate for dePuniet that he got such an injury at this stage of season but hey look at the injuries Lorenzo had last year and he rode with them and even got podium. We must remeber these are a different bred of people to us mere mortals. Anyway best of luck to Randy and fingers crossed for top 10. :D
