De Puniet surgery improves Kawasaki riders condition

After riding to his best ever MotoGP qualifying and race results with an injured left knee, Randy de Puniet last week underwent microsurgery to treat the damage to the joint.

After riding to his best ever MotoGP qualifying and race results with an injured left knee, Randy de Puniet last week underwent microsurgery to treat the damage to the joint.

Kawasakis 26 year old rider underwent the operation to treat blood clots and coagulated blood that had accumulated since the injury-inflicting crash at Mugello, and had 30cc of fluid removed by his surgeon. De Puniet was able to leave hospital on the day of the surgery, and should be back in action and his normal leathers at Donington Park having had to have specially customised leathers adapted to his 10cm leg swelling at Catalunya.

The Frenchman has now returned to his training regime, and is expected to be in good shape for the Nickel & Dime British Grand Prix this Sunday.
