Lorenzo to rest up after minor surgery

Lorenzo to rest up after minor surgery

The 2009 MotoGP World Championship runner-up is to spend ten days recuperating after a small operation to remove a plate in his collarbone.

Jorge Lorenzo’s off-season activities will take a short break after the Spaniard had an operation on Monday to remove a titanium plate in his left collarbone.

Lorenzo required the plate to be fitted in the wake of the 2005 250cc Catalunya Grand Prix, during which a collision with Alex de Angelis resulted in a double fracture of his collarbone. He then injured his shoulder in an off-season test in Valencia.

The 22 year-old will have ten days of respite from his preparations for the new season as he recovers from the procedure, after which he will resume his training programme.
