Yamaha Press Release: Valentino Rossi Discharged From Hospital To Recover At Home

Valentino Rossi has been discharged from hospital after the surgery to pin the bones he broke in an Enduro crash. Below is the press release from Yamaha explaining that he has been sent home to continue his recovery there:


Movistar Yamaha MotoGP‘s Valentino Rossi has been discharged from hospital after spending one night at the 'Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria Ospedali Riuniti' in Ancona.

Having spent one night at the 'Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria Ospedali Riuniti', after receiving surgery on the fractures in his right leg, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider Valentino Rossi‘s condition improved enough for him to leave the hospital.

The Italian had a good night‘s rest at the hospital and felt well enough this morning to return home at 10:00 AM, accompanied by his staff, where he will continue his recovery process.

Yamaha would again like to thank the entire staff of the 'Ospedali Riuniti di Ancona' and the 'Ospedale Civile di Urbino', where Rossi was originally diagnosed, for their professional care.


I spent a good night, I slept, and this morning I felt good. The doctors visited me and they gave me the OK to go home, where I'll be able to rest even better. I will begin the rehabilitation as soon as possible and we‘ll see how my body reacts before making any decisions. I have to say "thanks" once again to all the staff of the ’Ospedali Riuniti‘ in Ancona, but also Urbino's First Aid and the 118 Service, as well as all the friends that came to visit me. As I said yesterday, I will do everything I can to get back as soon as possible.

This is a serious injury: two displaced bones (plated together).

I had this done...

He needs to take the rest of the year off...a crash could severly complicate the injury.

He gets paid to race a MotoGP motorcycle, and was in with a shot at the title again until this happened.

Even if he misses a race or two, there's still a mathematical chance he could still lift the title. What would you do? I'd be in a hyperbaric chamber doing aerobic exercises, and on a static bicycle as soon as my consultant hesitated before saying he'd rather I left it a bit longer.
