Tamada undergoes surgery in Barcelona

Konica Minolta Honda rider Makoto Tamada underwent surgery on Thursday evening at the Dexeus Hospital in Barcelona, Spain. The Japanese riding ace suffered a right-wrist injury earlier this year when he crashed at Estoril, and the intense rehabilitation led to further muscular problems.

Last weekend in Assen, Tamada had a sore forearm and had a medical check after the Dutch TT, which showed that surgery was necessary to help the decompression of the muscle. After being operated on by Dr Xavier Mir, Tamada should be able to ride in next week's Red Bull US Grand Prix at Laguna Seca.
