Rookie of the year back on form after spate of accidents
Over the past two months the Fiat Yamaha MotoGP rider has suffered with recovery from arm pump, ankle fractures and concussion.
Undoubtedly the premier class’ Rookie of the Year, Lorenzo, 21, said: “I have recently started to train normally again after a gap of two months, which has been quite hard for me and I have been very tired lately.
“Since the accident in China I haven´t been able to use the exercise bike or do proper cardiovascular work until last week, so I am just having to take my regime step-by-step to try to build my strength. I know that building my fitness back up is the best way to return to my former level.
“Even though it´s been a hard time for me through the last two months I think that the crashes have made me stronger mentally. When you win it´s easy but when things are going badly, this is when you learn more about yourself and this is very important to make you a better competitor.
“For the next race I have to keep trying to build my confidence with the bike. Sachsenring is a complicated track and my best result there is only third, but I don't think about statistics when I race. I just want to arrive at Sachsenring feeling relaxed and do my best to enjoy it.”
