Rossi to test WSB Yamaha at Brno today

Valentino Rossi tests a Yamaha Superbike at MisanoValentino Rossi will be back in action today at the Brno circuit as he continues to assess his condition in the hope of a possible return to MotoGP racing.

After testing at the Misano circuit last week, Rossi will again ride a Yamaha YZF-R1, provided by the Japanese manufacturer's World Superbike team, in today's test at the Czech circuit.

The Italian will then decide if he is ready to compete at the German Grand Prix this weekend.

Rossi fractured his leg in a practice crash during the Italian Grand Prix last month, and although he was expected to be out for several months, the Italian looks determined to race again in Germany.

During the first test last week Rossi said he was still feeling pain.
