Update: Rossi fit to ride at Assen

Update: Rossi fit to ride at Assen.

MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi has been passed fit to ride at Assen, despite being hospitalised following a heavy morning fall.

The Italian superstar was thrown from his Camel Yamaha at high speed on only his sixth lap of the first free practice session, which had been extended to 1hr 30mins due to recent track modifications, and was taken to the trackside Clinica Mobile and then on to Assen hospital.

Full medical checks at the hospital revealed that Rossi hadn't - as initially feared - broken his right wrist, but has sustained hairline fractures to his right hand and left ankle, plus chest bruising and a haematoma on his right elbow.

Rossi then appeared in the Camel Yamaha pits just as this afternoon's second free practice session started - and was already wearing his leathers - indicating that he intends to try and regain lost ground ahead of Friday's qualifying session and Saturday's race.

After a nightmare start to the 2006 season, Rossi - the reigning five-times MotoGP world champion - has won the last two GPs to close the points gap from a low of 43 to 29 behind Repsol Honda's Nicky Hayden prior to this weekend's eighth round of the championship.

Rossi has previously stated that he must finish on the podium at all remaining races to have a chance of defending his crown.

The British Grand Prix takes place just one week after Assen.

Yay for ruling out serious injuries
