Valentino Rossi, the legendary Italian pilot of the MotoGP World Championship, returns to the circuit after recovering his health.

In a statement made by Rossi’s team, Movistar Yamaha, the 38-year-old pilot, who had an accident during the training session at the beginning of the month, said the health condition had improved and reached the level of competition.

In the statement, Rossi came to his first training yesterday and said he could compete in the Aragon Grand Prix at the 14th race of the season to be held in Spain on Sunday if he feels ready to try tomorrow.
