Romain Febvre says he is fit to race at Assen this weekend after a huge crash in the first moto at the USGP.

Febvre said in an Instagram post: “I have passed exams and it’s OK, I will be this week-end at Assen,” confirming that he will be behind the gate for the penultimate MXGP of the year and his home GP in France to round out the world championship season.

It is also welcome news for team France, who must have feared losing their rider in ten days with less that a month to the MXoN!

Week-end difficile qui avait bien commencé avec une 3eme Place en qualif samedi. Malheureusement j'ai lourdement chuté en première manche et je me suis relevé avec des grosses douleurs au cou. On a préféré faire l'impasse sur la deuxième course. J'ai passé des examens et tout va bien je serai au départ du GP de Assen ce week-end. Merci à tous pour vos messages et merci au team et aux partenaires. Tough weekend wich started pretty well with a 3rd place in qualifying Saturday. Unfortunately I crashed in the first moto and I got up with neck pain. We preferred to miss the second race. I have passed exams and it's OK, I will be this week-end at Assen. Thank you for your messages and thanks to the team and all sponsors. photo : @yamaharacingcomofficial @peppunderwear @bihr.poweringyourpassion @alpinestars @rynopower @kythelmet @ctikneebraces @monsterenergy @stancesocks #wagnermeca #tonon #casola
