Folgers back

From crash net..

At Mugello, Folger's former boss Herve Poncharal said he was unable to contact Folger and ruled out considering him for the team's remaining 2019 KTM MotoGP seat, which was duly confirmed as going to Hafizh Syahrin.

"He has never been in contact with me, and also I donít think he ever showed any desire [to return] - through any media or any friends," Poncharal explained, adding:

"If he [Folger] ever wants to come back here I'd be happy to talk to him..."

Things then appear to have moved quite quickly, with rumours at last weekend's Catalunya round suggesting some Moto2 teams (including Tech3) had now managed to contact Folger via his friends and that he was responding to text messages.

Intriguingly, there was also talk that Alpinestars had received a request for leathers to be made, (even though Folger previously raced with Ixon).

The reason soon became clear: Kalex had invited Folger to try its current and future Moto2 machines at this week's Aragon test.

It now remains to be seen if Folger feels fit enough to return to the class where he won three races during the 2014 and 2015 seasons.

Kalex guys said he was super happy after the test.
I am happy that he is back too. Hopefully, full time.

Glad to know he's active again. Was worried it was emotional stuff which can occur after long battles with serious physical illness, which can be devastatingly hard to bounce back from, especially in light of the mental fortitude required to be even a good mid-pack rider.

Unfortunately, he will struggle to get another top ride. Too risky.
