De Angelis returns home after Motegi scare

Alex de Angelis is back home in San Marino after spending two weeks in intensive care in Japan following a serious accident during FP4 at Motegi earlier in October.
IodaRacing's Alex de Angelis says he is 'delighted' to have returned home after being released from hospital in San Marino on Wednesday.

De Angelis spent two weeks in intensive care at the University Hospital of Dokkyo in Mibu, Japan after a high-speed spill in FP4 at Motegi.

He was later transferred to Italy and spent 48 hours in the State Hospital of San Marino this week before being released.

De Angelis has been ruled out of action until the first winter MotoGP test in February 2016 and will undergo constant check-ups and engage in physiotherapy over the coming weeks and months to return to fitness.

“I'm really happy to be back home. This is a very positive sign for me and I'm looking forward to getting back to train,” said de Angelis.

“The doctors have ruled out for the time [being] I come back on my bike, but it's okay because in the winter however you cannot try or ride. I will use this time to get back in shape and to get to the first test of the next year ready for the season.

“Once again I want to thank all the medical staff who assisted me both in Japan and in San Marino.

“Thanks again to the Clinica Mobile and to all the fans and friends that make me feel their closeness, even when I was away.”

Great news, but to be fair Crash.net, I think we can safely call Motegi slightly more than a scare! It was a major accident and Alex was lucky to be less seriously injured than first thought, for which I and many others are very glad. A scare is nearly losing the front into a turn, or running on thru a gravel trap, not throwing yourself at a barrier and damaging half your vertebra. Lets put things into perspective, please.
