He lost consciousness briefly after the crash but regained it quickly and was taken immediately to the Medical Centre for a check up. No injuries were diagnosed, but the rider was transferred to hospital for a precautionary check up.

Clinica Mobile Medical Director Michele Zasa explained, “Valentino suffered a concussion with a suspected loss of consciousness. From a neurological point of view he has recovered very well. He was taken to hospital in Alcañiz to make a further check, in particular a CT scan of the skull that has ruled out any bleeding in the brain. As a precaution he will be observed in the coming hours, but there are no special reasons for concern.”

Movistar Yamaha MotoGP Team Director Massimo Meregalli commented, “Vale was riding very well up to his crash, it’s a pity because after his out lap he said the changes we made were perfect and he felt the bike was working well. We are not clear yet on the cause of the crash but he was clearly riding with potential to finish on the podium. Fortunately he seems to be fine and was taken to the hospital as a precautionary check up following an initial check at the Medical Centre.”

The above medical bulletin about Rossi’s condition follows the CT scan the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider underwent at the Alcañiz hospital. His physical condition will be monitored closely by Clinica Mobile.
