The Suzuki rider was ruled out of the Spanish GP in July when a crash in qualifying left him with a broken and dislocated right shoulder - an injury the after-effects of which plagued much of his season.

  Maverick Viñales dodges disaster after jumping off bike at 228kph in Styrian MotoGP A week after miraculously avoiding a flying motorcycle that almost hit him at high speed, Yamaha MotoGP rider Maverick Viñales was counting his lucky stars for a second time after a terrifying incident during Sunday's Styrian MotoGP in Austria.Tearing along the home straight at 228 kph towards turn one of the Red Bull Ring on lap 16, the Spaniard realized that his brakes had completely gone, and he would be unable to stop.

Cal Crutchlow and Alex Rins say they will evaluate their fitness following Friday practice as they prepare to return to action in the Andalucia MotoGP . With this in mind, Crutchlow admits he will need to evaluate his fitness once he has been out on the bike to determine his competitiveness.

Marquez dislocated his left shoulder while celebrating his fifth MotoGP title on the in-lap of the Motegi race last weekend, and later revealed that it had also happened several He called it his "weak point" of the season , but expects it to be "perfect" and fully recovered just a few months after the operation .

"F***, I think it was the first crash on the right side since the injury and I have a bit of pain on the shoulder but nothing important.

"I was struggling during all the FP2 with this pain on the right corners."

Surprised to be suffering some pain after the crash, Rins admits he will stop off in Barcelona on his way home from Portugal to see famed MotoGP doctor Xavier Mir to assess whether he will need surgery.

"And about the operation, my plans are after the race I will take the car and I will drive to Andorra, my home, but before I will stop in Barcelona to see doctor Mir and analyse if it's good or not to get the operation, if it's necessary or not.

"And then let's see, if it's necessary I will take it as soon as possible.

"He has a good team. He always makes all my operations, so if I need to get the operation, I will stay with him."

Rins ended Friday's running in Portugal 17th on the combined timesheets as a result of his crash, but feels he could have been inside the provisional Q2 places without his spill.

The Suzuki rider aggravating his shoulder hasn't come at the best moment, as he looks to end the season in runner-up spot - something he admitted on Thursday would be a "dream come true".

Should he achieve it, it will mark Suzuki's first 1-2 in the riders' championship since the 1981 500cc campaign when title winner Marco Lucchinelli headed teammate Randy Mamola.
