Pramac Racing Team’s Héctor Barberá injured in training incident

Pramac Racing’s sole rider Héctor Barberá yesterday suffered injuries during a training mishap near his home in Spain.

Barberá has broken his left fibula and shinbone while he was training for the next MotoGP™ round which takes place in the U.S. in a week.

Tomorrow morning he will undergo surgery at the Instituto Universitario USP Dexeus in Barcelona. Dr Xavier Mir, chief of the plastic surgery unit, and his crew will perform the surgery. Dr Mir has previously treated Barberá for injures he sustained in 2010. Tomorrow afternoon Dr Mir will re-examine Barberá to determine the estimated recovery time needed in order to see the Spaniard back on his Ducati. The Pramac Racing Team will wait for the surgery’s result to decide the plans for the foreseeable future.
