125: Terol fit for Brno

Former 2010 125cc World Championship leader Nicolas Terol will return to grand prix action at Brno in the Czech Republic this weekend.

The Bancaja Aspar Aprilia rider, winner of round one, was leading the championship when he crashed out of round seven in Catalunya (pictured). A back injury sustained during the fall then ruled him out of the Sachsenring event.

"It is a long while since I rode my bike so I can't wait to return to action this weekend," said the Spaniard. "The rehab work we've done has helped me improve day by day and I'm ready to return. I feel mentally strong and even though I'm not in perfect physical shape I don't think it will slow me down.

"I did four sessions on a motorcycle last week - two on a short circuit and two on a motocross track without jumps - and they were very positive. I felt good on the bike, I recovered my confidence and I think I'm ready to get back on track.

"Brno is a circuit that I love, I go well there and I won last year so I hope to be on the podium if possible. I was leading the championship up until the crash so that means we were doing a good job. We just have to pick it up again and I'm sure we'll be back to top form."

Terol has slipped back to third in the championship, 39 points behind the dominant Marc Marquez but 13 ahead of team-mate Bradley Smith.

I think Binder will win the Red Bull Rookies Cup next year, he looks like the real deal , hope to see him in Moto3 in the near future, and whats even better his brother has applied for a place in the championship for next season, his name is (Darryn Binder) he also looks really good. But back to Terol glad to see him back, shame that he missed the last race in Sachsenring, he stood a real good chance of winning the championship.
