The 29-year-old Spaniard has been on the sidelines since June when he underwent an operation in the United States on his right arm, fractured in a crash in July 2020, the fourth time he has gone under the knife for the injury.

“Having completed a fruitful two-day test in Misano and continued intensive training at home, Marquez and the Honda Team have set a date for his return: the Aragon Grand Prix,” read a team statement on their website.

“110 days after he last raced a MotoGP machine at the Italian Grand Prix on May 29, Marc Marquez will return to competition at the Aragon Grand Prix.

“Since undergoing a successful fourth operation on his right humerus, the eight-time world champion (he has won a 125cc and a Moto2 title to go with his six MotoGP crowns) has followed the strict guidance of his medical team in order to facilitate a full recovery.

“After numerous check-ups, consultations and tests, all involved are satisfied with the recovery made, and the #93 will now take the next step in his rehabilitation — returning to competition.”

Marquez broke his arm in a crash at the Spanish Grand Prix in 2020 and while he returned to racing in April last year, and won three races, his injury continued to cause him problems.
