The end of the racing season has allowed Jorge Navarro some much-needed healing time for multiple injuries picked up during a nightmare second half of the 2017 Moto2 season, plus minor surgery for a leg injury from 2016.

The operation involved removing a screw placed in his left tibia, while the more recent injuries consistent of a ruptured ligament in his left ring finger at October's Australian Grand Prix and a fracture in the scaphoid of his right hand at November's Valencia finale.

“I feel a lot better. The leg is in very good condition already, the finger is improving and the hand is getting better – albeit slowly," said the Gresini rider. "Everything seems to be going the right way and looks like I will be able to resume training halfway through this month.

"I will now start with some workout at the gym, but I will take it steadily: the goal is to strengthen both shoulders and ankles, but without going too far. I hope I’m confident I’ll be back to full fitness in early January already, so that I can start with some flat-track and supermoto.”

Navarro, a double raced winner in Moto3, finished 14th overall in his rookie Moto2 season. The Spaniard's Fan Club dinner will take place at La Pobla de Vallbona on December 9th.
