"I'm really excited that my doctors think I can ride this weekend," Rossi said in a team release. "Tomorrow, I will see the medical officer and then we will have the final decision. I felt good on the R1, but I know my M1 at the track is a different thing and it will be hard for me. But I miss my bike and my team, and I want to try. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone and being back in the paddock; I was tired of being at home!"
