Sekiguchi back in Japan to nurse his injuries

Campetella Racing rider Taro Sekiguchi, who suffered injuries when he crashed during the last test of the pre-season, left the Jerez hospital yesterday and went back to Japan.

Sekiguchi underwent surgery in Jerez as his left leg was seriously damaged: he suffered a double fracture of the femur and kneecap, and external laceration of the thigh and of two blood vessels.

Sekiguchi will have to wear a plaster cast for the next six weeks and will miss the four first rounds of the 250cc World Championship, and could be back for the race held at the Mugello circuit.
