Hector Barbera to return to action at Sepang

Hector Barbera is ready to return to action in the upcoming Sepang GP.
The Spanish rider who fractured his collarbone in a high speed crash during the Motegi race and missed the Phillip Island round, admitted that he’s still not 100% fit, but he’s going to ride in the hot and humid Malaysian climate.

Barbera is set to leave the Mapfre Aspar team after spending his first two years in MotoGP with the squad, and is expected to be the sole rider for Pramac Ducati next season.
The Spaniard is leaving after Aspar announced he would be fielding a 1000cc CRT bike following Ducati’s incomprehensible decision not to lease the team a GP12 in 2012.

Here’s what Barbera said regarding his return.
“I have not stopped working ever since I left the Hospital USP Dexeus.
The crash in Japan was pretty nasty and it was a shame that I got hurt but when these things happen you just have to deal with it in the best way you can.
At first I was really upset and in a lot of pain but little by little I have been able to recover and I want to thank Dr.

Xavier for the perfect job he has done on me.
I also want to thank my physiotherapist Jordi Reig for his help because without him such a swift recovery would not have been possible.
Ever since I left the hospital I have been in Alcoy with my physio, doing two sessions a day and working extremely hard to be in Malaysia in the best possible shape.
I know I won’t be at 100% but I am keen to give my best and return to the good form we were showing before the injury.
