Marc VDS Honda rider Jack Miller has been cleared to resume MotoGP testing at Phillip Island next week having recovered from leg injuries.
The Australian fractured the tibia and fibula in his right leg in a training accident last month.
That forced him to miss MotoGP's first 2016 test at Sepang, but he has been given the green light to resume testing for the Phillip Island sessions from Wednesday to Friday next week.
"I'm itching to get back on the bike after such a long lay-off and I don't think we could have chosen a better track at which to return than Phillip Island given my condition," Miller said.
"With only four right turns it means I'm not going to be working my injured right leg so hard, although it's still going to be a tough test.
"I've been training hard here in Australia and working with my local physiotherapist to reduce the swelling in the leg, to give me more mobility on the bike, and it's looking good."
Team principal Michael Bartholemy warned that it would be a tough test for Miller.
"Jack has been working hard to regain fitness after his injury and he was adamant that he was fit to test in Australia," he said.
"The doctors who've managed his rehabilitation agreed with his assessment, so he will ride at Phillip Island.
"It will be a tough test with the injury but it will give Jack an opportunity to evaluate the control ECU and unified software for the first time and to assess how far Michelin have progressed with the development of the tyres."
Miller's Moto2 graduate team-mate Tito Rabat represented Marc VDS solo at Sepang, where he was towards the tail of the field as he built up his familiarity with the MotoGP Honda.
