The French rider was operated on almost immediately after the crash yesterday afternoon, yet is going under the knife once more today to have a pin inserted. He was testing a new chassis for his Moto3™ Honda NSR250.

The Frenchman, who recorded his first Grand Prix podium this year, finishing second in Germany, is currently sixth in the Moto3 World Championship. Masbou could also miss the Aragón round at the end of September, but will do everything possible to be fit for the races in October.
