MotoGP: Elias will race at Brno

Gresini Honda rider missed three races after big smash

TONI Elias reckons he'll be back on the grid at the Czech Grand Prix in Brno.

Following a crash during practice at the Dutch Grand Prix at Assen, the Spanish MotoGP rider has missed three races, having broken his femur after heavily crashing his Honda RC212V.

Elias' astonishing recovery is due to an intensive recovery programme involving, rest, physio and intensive strength work on his legs.

Although hopeful to be on the grid, the Spanish rider remains optimistic and doesn't reckon he'll be back to full speed, instead using the race as a practice to get a better idea of what he needs to improve on, so he can get back to full fitness faster.
