Multiple MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi is undergoing observation in a Rimini, Italy, hospital with chest and abdominal injuries sustained after a crash during training at the Crossodromo Cavallara, located 50 km from Rossi’s home town of Tavullia. Rossi was riding motocross when the incident occured.

A Yamaha Racing statement confirmed that Rossi did not suffer any fractures and there is no evidence of serious trauma. However, Rossi remains under medical observation, with an official update expected at noon European time today.

Rossi has not ridden motocross since 2010, when an accident that damaged his tendons and ligaments put an end to his championship season. He has since preferred training with flat track racing, most usually at the VR46 Moto Ranch in Tavullia, where the VR46 Academy is held each year.
