Ana Carrasco, happy on her return to the motorcycle five months later

The Murcian got back on her Kawasaki in another important step in recovering from her serious crash last season.

The Spanish rider Ana Carrasco, the first woman to be proclaimed world champion of motorcycling, in the Superbikes Supersport 300 category in 2018, got back on her official motorcycle this Wednesday five months after fracturing two vertebrae and assured that she ended up with " better sensations "than expected.

"I am very happy with the first day. The sensations have been better than I expected. I have felt quite good from the beginning and I have gone quite fast. I still have some discomfort in my neck and back, but I have found good driving. Happy to go back to the circuit, to work with the team again, "he said.

Carrasco, 23, suffered a double vertebra fracture last September after suffering a fall during private tests at the Estoril circuit (Portugal) and after testing on smaller displacement motorcycles and this Wednesday he put on his overalls to get on on the official motorcycle of the Kawasaki Provec World SSP300 team, at the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit.

"The starting point is quite good. We will continue working, trying to improve each week. As I gain physical shape I will also be able to drive more easily and continue with the rehabilitation process and work each week. There is a lot of time left for the start of the season If all goes well, we will reach 100% at the first race ", he commented.

A day of practice in which MotoGP riders such as the Spanish Pol Espargaró (Repsol Honda) and the French Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha YZR M 1) also participated, among others. In addition, it served to pay tribute to the former Italian rider Fausto Gresini, director of the Gresini Racing MotoGP team, who died this Monday at the age of 60 in a hospital in Bologna as a result of a coronavirus infection.
