Loris Capirossi is set to return to racing action at the German Grand Prix in Sachsenring.
The Italian has been forced to miss the last two races after a heavy crash during qualifying for the Assen TT.
Although his Pramac Ducati team used Sylvain Guintoli and Andrea Iannone at the post-race Mugello test, Capirossi is aiming to be back in the next race in Germany, even if he admits he is not 100 per cent fit.
"I feel better, but my physical condition is still not acceptable," said Capirossi. "I'm doing daily physical therapy sessions at the medical center IM2S of Monaco.
"I already missed two races, that Mugello the most important for me. I want to ride my bike as soon as possible."
The German GP takes place on July 17.
