Marc Marquez is now allowed to kick-start his mobility recovery programme after his latest medical check.
The latest report suggests Marquez will soon gradually return to competitive racing; however, it remains a mystery whether the recovery will be quick enough for him to participate in the season-opener on March 28.
Since July last year, the Spaniard has been sidelined due to a broken right arm suffered in Jerez, which later required three operations.
Nonetheless, the latest updates do not suggest Marquez is allowed to jump on the bike. Instead, he can now intensify his gym training to build his muscle.
“From this moment on, Marquez can now intensify his strength and mobility recovery programme to return to competitive racing gradually,” said Repsol Honda in a statement.
