A week of rest and treatment for Pedrosa

Tuesday, 3 June 2014

Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa had a check up on Monday at the Hospital Universitario Quirón Dexeus in Barcelona, to assess how his right arm is healing from recent surgery.

Pedrosa had an operation to reduce ‘arm pump’ symptoms after the Jerez race in which he finished third, almost a month ago, and has since been working to recover as well as possible. In the subsequent two races at Le Mans and Mugello Pedrosa has not featured on the podium.

Following his latest check-up doctors recommended continued rest and specific treatment in order for him to be in the best possible condition for his home race at Catalunya in less than a fortnight’s time.

In consultation with Dr. Xavier Mir on Monday, Pedrosa’s right forearm was seen to still be swollen from the surgery on 6th May, due to the lack of rest since the operation – following such a busy recent race schedule. Rest and rehabilitation are therefore the order of the day.

“We need to use every hour of every day in the best possible way,” said Pedrosa in his latest blog update. “It was painful at Mugello, the race felt long as the track is demanding with so many changes in direction, so fourth was not a bad result considering. Seeing the battle that (Marc) Marquez and (Jorge) Lorenzo had, firstly I have to congratulate them but I want to be back at 100% so that I can join in the fight for victory. At Montmelo we will push to be up there.”
