Barcelona race in doubt for Pedrosa after broken collarbone

Barcelona race in doubt for Pedrosa after broken collarbone

Following Dani Pedrosa’s crash in Sunday’s Monster Energy Grand Prix de France, the Repsol Honda rider was admitted yesterday to the Clínica Teknon, where new tests confirmed a neat fracture of his right collarbone.

Pedrosa returned to Barcelona immediately after the race with the x-ray scans from the Le Mans circuit medical centre. The Spaniard visited his doctors at Teknon Medical Centre and further medical tests confirmed a clean break of the right collarbone.

The 25 year old spent the night in the hospital, immobilised with a compressive dressing and will decide in the next few days if he will undergo surgery to repair the fracture with a new plate, or let the bone heal itself without intervention. In either case, his presence in the Grand Prix of Catalunya, to be held on June 5th, is uncertain.
