Superman will do 30 laps on Friday to evaluate his fitness. Guess we'll see.

He still has to get clearance from the tracks Cheif Medical Officer, which will probably happen cause hes Valentino Rossi Dawg!

My thing is this, what happens if he hurts that leg now? What then, you ask me he needs to take more time off. But what do I know, could he still win the championship when considering the point spread? What would have to happen for Rossi to win. That would be epic if he could pull that off.
Might even make me a fan of Rossi, nah....

Cool Rossi's suit for Sachsenring...

Updates to Rossi's protective gear
GPONE.com

Immediately following the Mugello incident, Valentino started his rehabilitation and Dainese began their preparations for his return. They designed and fabricated special equipment which would allow the Italian world champion to return as quickly as possible. Valentino provided his usual excellent feedback as he worked in collaboration with the Dainese technicians.

Already during the Misano test on July 7th, the Doctor was trying out a new suit and boots. Both items were modified to provide both additional protection and comfort for the rider.

The technicians from D-tec (Dainese Technology Center) then fine tuned the modifications ahead of the second test in Brno, and Vale's amazing MotoGP comeback at the Sachsenring.

From the first free practice session on, Valentino will be wearing a race suit equipped with the D-air® racing system.

The specific modifications regard the lower leg area of the suit: the usual tibia guard made from polypropylene was replaced by a kevlar-carbon equivalent and a second protective element was added for the fibula. Valentino asked if this protection could be incorporated into the left leg of the suit as well. The circumference of the lower leg area was increased in order to make room for the new protection as well as to facilitate the insertion of a new boot.


The size of the boot was therefore enlarged, in order to guarantee greater comfort to the injured leg. A lateral opening was also added to facilitate taking the boot on and off.

The rapid response to the requests of the rider, and the development of specially adapted protective gear, are the result of the collaboration between Dainese technicians, engineers and doctors. They are experts in human ergonomics and motion, and apply this knowledge to the creation of protective sporting equipment.
