Pablo Nieto recovering from wrist operation

Pablo Nieto last week went under the surgeon´s knife at the Zarzuela hospital in Madrid in an attempt to resolve some problems in his right wrist. The operation was completed successfully by Doctor Angel Villamor, after it emerged that a tendon and nerve were being restricted in the wrist and were preventing full movement in the hand.

The Spanish Aprilia rider was given the all clear to spend the New Year with his family and he is already looking forward to begin preparations for the new season. `Everything went really well,´ explained Nieto. `It was a problem I noticed on a few occasions during the season but it was nothing urgent so we decided to hang on until now to sort it out. I will be able to begin my normal physical training programme within a week and get back on the bike at the end of the month for the first tests of 2003´.
