News that everyone has been expecting for a long time, with MotoGP (and Dorna) finally finding its champion, speeding up rehabilitation times in record time.

But the Cervera phenomenon will not be the only return to the track, in fact also Joan Mir he should get back on his Suzuki GSX-RR. The Majorcan suffered an injury to his right ankle, as well as damage to his ligaments, after the terrible highside he remedied on the first lap of the Austrian GP, ​​forcing him to miss the Misano round. A really complicated season for the 2020 world champion who hopes to close the Hamamatsu chapter in the best possible way. From next MotoGP season he will be a Repsol rider.

Joan Mir and Marc Marquez will share the same box from the next championship. Fortunately, the stop was limited for the Suzuki rider, who was able to avoid surgery, despite having to observe a two-week rest period. In San Marino he was replaced by the Japanese Kazuki Watanabestruggling with some too many difficulties with the MotoGP prototypes.

Before flying to the Aragon MotorLand, Joan Mir underwent a medical examination. His doctor Juan Garcias gave him the green light, on Thursday he will have to receive the “fit” from the medical center of the circuit directed by dr. Angel Charte. “It wasn’t easy to skip a race and watch it on TV at home – said the Majorcan -. I have recovered well from my ankle injury and I think my fitness will be at 90% this weekend which is not bad“.

Joan Mir still feels some pain, but nothing that can stop him from getting on the bike. We need to shelter a season that risks being disastrous if he fails to reverse the course. Since the Le Mans Grand Prix he has accumulated six zeros in eight races. A clear sign of the air in the Suzuki garage after the announcement of farewell to the championship. A professional agony that will last six more races before the final farewells.
