Valentino Rossi : Further surgery in late 2018

Already 22 days after his shin and calf fracture Valentino Rossi swung back in 2017 in the saddle of his Yamaha. But it still hurts pain. In addition, an operation is planned for the end of the year. 

In the MotoGP title fight, Valentino Rossi could not intervene in 2017 but surprised the 38-year-old once the entire motorsport scene. After breaking his right shin and fibula during an Enduro accident on August 31, 2017, "The Doctor" made a comeback in no time at all, demanding recognition from fans and critics.

Just 22 days after his accident, Rossi swung back into the saddle of his Yamaha. In Aragón, he secured first place in the first row and then fifth in the race.

The nine-time champion has even been nominated for the Laureus Award, which will be awarded for the comeback of the year. "My leg is doing very well again. But I'm still in pain. I also had to change my training because I can not jog. But everything is fine on the bike, "assures Rossi.

But the veteran is still another surgery on his leg before. «The problem is: it happened towards the end of the season. The inserted metal pin must remain in place for at least one year. It was in September, so this year I'll probably go that way and have the appropriate removal operation done at the end of the season. But that's not a big problem because you feel nothing. You know he's there, but it makes no difference, "says Rossi.
