Moto2: Baldassarri tries again after double shoulder dislocation

“See you, I hope, on the track next week!" – Lorenzo Baldassarri.
Ruled out of the season-opening Qatar Moto2 race after dislocating both his shoulders in qualifying, Lorenzo Baldassarri is confident he will be fit for action this weekend in Argentina.

The young Forward Racing rider, who like rookie team-mate Luca Marini is also a member of the VR46 Riders Academy, amazingly tried to race the day after his accident.

Doctors decided otherwise and he has since undergone treatment to reduce inflammation of the joints and improve mobility for round two.

But before he can compete the Italian will once again need to get the green light from medical staff at the circuit.

"After the big crash I now start to feel much better. I made some exams with specialists who have expressed a positive opinion on my participation in the next GP of Argentina,” Baldassarri said.

"I'm confident we can race if the doctors of the circuit will give me the green light, in any case I will have to wear special braces to prevent abnormal movements.

"I would like to thank Forward Racing, VR46 and Clinica Mobile who were very supportive to me. See you, I hope, on the track next week!"

Marini, Valentino Rossi's half-brother, finished a solid tenth in Qatar.
