Emilio Alzamora eager to be back on track after successful surgery

Emilio Alzamora (Fortuna Honda Gresini) underwent surgery yesterday as muscular problems in both arms have been hampering his riding for the last couple months. The operation lasted about two hours ; the surgery was performed by Dr Ruiz Cotorro, in Barcelona, Spain.

Alzamora will start rehabilitation as soon as this week, as the injury has been fully healed, but the Spaniard will have to wait a week to resume full training. Cotorro said : ´The surgery was a success, we hope Emilio will be comfortable with his bike very soon´.

After the operation, Alzamora said : ´The last couple of races have been really tough, as the pain was increasing. My right arm was very painful, and riding like this wasn´t easy at all. My left arm wasn´t in such a bad condition, but we decided to take the opportunity of the summer break to avoid any further injury in the future. I´m eager to start training again and come back to the circuits. When we get rid of this physical problem, I hope to be back in the fight for the front positions, and give something to cheer about to my fans, who have been very supportive, in the good times as well as in the bad one´.
