Dovizioso operated on in Spain

Scot Racing Team's Andrea Dovizioso underwent a successful operation on his forearms to cure the 'arm pump' problems that he has encountered lately. His team explained that he had been particularly bothered by this problem at the Dutch TT and was eventually treated last week in Barcelona.

The surgery was carried out on Friday by forearm specialist Dr Mir at the Dexeus Hospital, who had operated on MotoGP star Makoto Tamada the previous day for a similar problem.

The operation was successful and should allow Dovizioso to be back to full fitness for the next 250 round later this month at Donington Park.
