Oxford-born Moto2 star Bradley Smith has been passed fit to ride at the season-ending race in Valencia.

Smith broke his collarbone and suffered a chest contusion after crashing during practice at the Malaysian Grand Prix.

The 20-year-old, who will ride in the MotoGP World Championship in 2013 and 2014, missed the race as a result.

"I've got the OK to ride but I will have to man up when I get to Valencia because there is going to be plenty of pain and discomfort," said Smith.

"We will strap up the collarbone for maximum comfort and mobility.

"I won the 125cc race there last year and I'm so pleased I can ride because I've been really motivated to get back out there and race ever since the crash in Malaysia," added the Tech 3 Racing Team rider.
