Stefan Bradl and Scott Redding were cleared to attempt to ride in MotoGP and Moto2, respectively, this weekend in the Grand Prix of Japan after passing medical tests on their injuries.
Bradl suffered a broken ankle in a crash at Sepang. He was cleared to ride his LCR Honda RC213V last weekend at Phillip Island but was ordered by doctors off his bike after practice Friday due to weakness and pain.
Redding suffered a broken arm in a crash during qualifying at Phillip Island and underwent surgery last Saturday night. He didn't race Sunday and lost the Moto2 championship lead to Pol Espargaro. Redding trails Espargaro by 16 points with two races remaining, so Redding's evaporating title hopes could revive if he can race this weekend.
