Marc Marquez is targeting a return to action in the French round of the 125cc World Championship at Le Mans, despite dislocating his shoulder in his fall at the Spanish GP.

Marquez - who took third in the season opener in Qatar - had started the Spanish race from pole before falling on the opening lap.

Having now had a follow up examination on his injury, Marquez has targeted a quick return to action although he admits that he will have to wait and see if he is able to ride.

"I just passed a new medical examination with Dr. Mir and I feel quite well," he said. "It's been a long week and bored because I could not do anything. I've been home and I've been seeing friends, but I could not do any sport or train, and thus the days become monotonous.

"Now we must work to see if we in a position to race. Dr. Mir has told me that the evolution of the shoulder is good and I was lucky in the fall. Now I can start functional recovery, so if all goes well, I hope to get on the bike at the end of next week when we get to France, but it's still not certain."
