Despite injury, the start of a motocross race for Andrea Dovizioso was still light . The Italian competed on the Monte Coralli route in the Italian province of Faenza last Sunday.

Andrea Dovizioso will be fit for the first race of the delayed MotoGP season despite undergoing surgery on his collarbone on Sunday, Ducati have confirmed. The Italian sustained the injury during a motocross race in Faenza and had a plate fixed to the bone to try to improve his recovery time.

Many riders often train motocross during the season, but training and racing are two pairs of shoes. The drivers should be careful in training. Nevertheless, there are always injuries. Ducati still wanted to enable Dovizioso to start the motocross race so that he could experience a feeling of competition again after the long Corona break.

Dovizioso: "I hardly have any pain"

"We know that motocross carries certain risks," says Ducati sports director Paolo Ciabatti. "Nevertheless, we allowed Andrea to take part in this local race. He had told us that he had to feel those feelings that can only be experienced in a real competition." After weeks of motocross training, the green light was given.

"On the other hand, motocross is a discipline that many MotoGP riders train regularly, so we have to be relieved that his injury will not have such serious consequences that Andrea would be missing at the start of the season in Jerez," said Ciabatti. A little more than two weeks remain until the first race.
