Rossi falls from motocross bike

MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi has been diagnosed with 'minor injuries' after falling from his motocross bike.

The Italian, winner of the opening round of 2010 season last weekend in Qatar, was training on Thursday near Pesaro when he suffered the spill.

Feeling pain in his back on Friday morning, Rossi decided to go for a medical check, whereupon x-rays confirmed that the 31-year-old racing legend had suffered some bruising.

The Fiat Yamaha rider will thus be fit to defend his early championship lead in next weekend's Japanese Grand Prix.

Loads of silly comments here, Rossi has been riding motocross for years as training, so do many other roadracers. Go to his website and you can see footage, it is not world record beating stuff but high enough speed and big enough jumps to make you look pale. Enough to keep him sharp. Get well soon Champ :)
