Rins’ surgery a success

Moto2™ title contender fixes left collarbone injury sustained in training

Alex Rins (Paginas Amarillas HP 40) suffered a break to his left collarbone during a training accident on Wednesday, with surgery set for the following day to fix the injury ahead of the British GP. Rins’ surgery was carried out by Doctor Xavier Mir at the Hospital Universitario Quirón Dexeus in Barcelona with success, with a titanium plate put in place to stabilize the fracture.

Dr. Xavier Mir: “We operated on Alex to fix a break to the left collarbone. We reduced the fracture and have inserted a titanium plate and six screws. After that, we did some control x-rays that showed us the fracture was reduced. After that we closed the skin and muscle around the collarbone. The idea is that it remains in place until tomorrow with analgesic treatment, to then treat it again on Monday and begin with rehabilitation.”

Rins is expected to take part in the upcoming Octo British Grand Prix at Silverstone in the UK.
