The 23-year-old former WorldSSP champion was injured in a training accident at the Estoril circuit, a crash that would see the Provec Kawasaki rider side-lined for the remainder of the year.

Despite confirming that she is ready to get back on her Kawasaki Ninja 400, she is also quick to admit she is not at the fitness level she was before the crash. “My head is in a positive place and really soon I hope to be back to full riding fitness”.

With such strong competition within her chosen class of racing – and new rivals joining the paddock each season – Ana knows that track time now is crucial. Her Provec Kawasaki Ninja 400 has been prepared in its pre-season livery while her crew is making ready to welcome her back to the pit box.

 Ana commented:

“Of course I feel super happy to be back on the bike. In reality, five months has seemed like five years to me! I love riding, so to be back with my team is for me the perfect situation. I am motivated and happy.

“I have been listening a lot to my doctor and now he says it is OK to ride. I am excited to be ‘bike ready’ and to get back on my Ninja 400 for Winter testing.

“Now it is time for me and my Ninja to get back into shape. I have a great team to support me and had so many good wishes from fans when I was recovering. My head is in a positive place and really soon I hope to be back to full riding fitness.”
