Cycle News Staff | January 23, 2013

Avintia Blusens’ Hiroshi Aoyama broke his left wrist in a motocross crash on Friday, but says he will be fit for the opening round of pre-season MotoGP tests at Sepang in Malaysia.

Aoyama, who is returning to MotoGP after a horrible season of World Superbike racing in which he finished 18th in the World Championship, suffered “a small fracture” that will only require a week to heal, according to the MotoGP website.

The Sepang test is scheduled for February 5-7
