“Happy after our doctor's appointment today,” he posted to social media. “The injury keeps a positive evolution. 

“We've identified the cause of the pain and we'll undergo a small surgery to ease it. 

“We won't be at the Thailand MotoGP but we keep working towards a full recovery.”

The LCR Honda rider broke his leg at Mugello and needed two operations to fix it.

He missed seven MotoGP rounds, as a result.

Rins returned in Japan, partaking in only Friday practice to ease back. He then finished ninth in the Indian MotoGP.

But his comeback then hit a setback when he was forced to withdraw from last weekend’s Australian round due to pain in his leg.

Rins, who won a MotoGP race earlier this year in Texas in Honda’s brightest moment of a drab year, has agreed to join Yamaha for 2024.
