Estrella Galicia MarcVDS rider Jack Miller will return to MotoGP action at Phillip Island next Wednesday after a broken leg saw him miss out on the opening Sepang test outing.

Miller broke the tibia and fibula in his right leg in a motocross crash but the 21-year-old Australian has been passed fit to ride in Australia by doctors, after completing an intensive rehabilitation program following the injury.

“I’m itching to get back on the bike after such a long lay off and I don’t think we could have chosen a better track at which to return than Phillip Island given my condition. With only four right turns it means I’m not going to be working my injured right leg so hard, although it’s still going to be a tough test,” said Miller, who is now three days behind with the new tyres and electronics.

“I’ve been training hard here in Australia and working with my local physiotherapist to reduce the swelling in the leg, to give me more mobility on the bike, and it’s looking good. I’m looking forward to putting some laps in on the bike, getting a feel for the new electronics and seeing how the tyres have improved since Valencia.”
