Rossi getting closer to full fitness

Valentino Rossi keeps his focus on the racing in the Czech Republic ahead of mounting speculation of his move to Ducati...
While much of the attention on Valentino Rossi is likely to centre on his movements off the track, the Italian remains focused on the job in hand as he resumes action following the summer break.

Still recovering from the broken leg that effectively ended his chances of challenging for the 2010 MotoGP title, while Rossi completed a remarkable run to the podium last time out at Laguna Seca, he maintains the time away has not left him feeling quite 100 per cent fit yet.

Nonetheless, the reigning champion is well on the way to getting back to his best and is confident of another step forward at Brno.

"I've had a good break and it's helped me a lot to have this time to work on my physical condition. I'm feeling good about my leg and my shoulder and I hope that this weekend I'll be feeling much stronger. Brno is a great track for me and it's always special because it's the first place I ever won at.

“Last year I had a great race, this year will be harder because I'm not completely fit yet but I am looking forward to getting back on the bike. We have half the season still to go and our aim is to have a good second half!"

Rossi is anticipated to announce a high-profile switch from Yamaha to Ducati at the end of the race weekend.

Christ you people are insane... The guy breaks his leg, has pins in it, and comes 4th 6 weeks later and 3rd a week after that. And that is nothing to write home about. So what does that say about the other 14 riders on the grid? The difference between Rossi and Stoner is that even with his shoulder Rossi said that Jorge was simply too quick. Casey just complains day in day out (I liked him originaly, but sadly not now). Go Rossi (or Jorge, or Melandri, or Hayden, or Spies - just give us a show :) )
