DE PUNIET WILL MAKE HIS COMEBACK AT BRNO GP

Brno, 12th August: LCR Honda MotoGP rider Randy De Puniet will be back on his Honda RC212V nr.14 this week end for the Cardion ab Grand Prix Czech Republic after the approval of the Medical Commission that have checked the Frenchman overall condition today. Randy de Puniet is set to make an impressive return to action just three weeks after fracturing the tibia and fibula in his left leg during the Germany GP. In preparation for the weekend the 29-year-old conducted a private ride in southern France on Monday, in which he rode a Honda CBR1000 machine at Ales to see how his leg felt.

De Puniet: "I wanted to confirm I would be okay to ride and not just ride slowly, but fast. After the test I am very happy and also confident for this weekend. There was a small amount of pain in the first five laps but this is normal, especially with the ankle when changing gear. This week end I will try to take as many points as possible. We will see how it goes during the practice and qualifying sessions. I will need to go step by step in each session, to work with my head, the most important thing is to be prepared for the race and to get the best result."
