No further damage to Lorenzo collarbone

Monday, 1 July 2013

MotoGP™ World Champion Jorge Lorenzo passed a further medical test on Monday afternoon which confirmed that his left collarbone has suffered no further injury than first revealed, following a heavy crash in practice for last weekend’s Dutch TT.

Lorenzo had his accident in second free practice on Thursday afternoon, then flying home to Barcelona where surgery was carried out in the early hours of Friday morning. He would return to Assen on Friday afternoon before – following two medical tests at the circuit – going on to finish in the top five of Saturday’s race.

On Monday, the Yamaha Factory Racing rider headed to the Hospital General de Catalunya (HGC) in Sant Cugat on the outskirts of Barcelona. He was attended to by Dr. Teresa Sola.

"The physical effort required in the Grand Prix of The Netherlands does not appear to have caused any repercussions," Dr. Sola explained, with Lorenzo’s latest assessment having involved revisions to control the wound, management of mobility and an x-ray which confirmed that the recovery of the left clavicle is well underway.

Lorenzo will not be prevented from taking part in next weekend’s German Grand Prix and he has now been permitted to begin full rehabilitation ahead of Round 8 at the Sachsenring.
