No physical complications for Marquez

Following his latest medical check-up in Barcelona on Sunday, it has been confirmed that Marc Marquez has suffered no further complications after his heavy crash in Free Practice 3 at Assen. Hand and foot fractures will be able to continue healing naturally.

Following Saturday’s race in The Netherlands, the Repsol Honda Team rider successfully passed a medical examination in Barcelona. This involved Dr. Xavier Mir, of the Quiron Dexeus University Hospital, examining the fractures – one to the little finger of Marquez’s right hand and the other to the big toe of his right foot.

More importantly, it was confirmed that Marquez would not require any treatment for arm pump. He had suffered the issue during the race as a result of having to brake with only one finger because of his injuries, but will be able to recover after a period of rest, meaning no permanent damage has been sustained to any ligaments.

The Repsol Honda Team rider is now taking several days off as convalescence, avoiding any significant physical activity before returning to action for the eni Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland on Sunday 14 July.

In his Repsol Honda blog this week, Marquez wrote: “Luckily, after hurting myself, I had no major injuries and on Saturday was able to take part in a very special Assen race in the history of motorcycle racing. The fractures in the little finger and toe will be resolved by the Sachsenring, so we’re looking forward to the German GP.”
