Successful surgery for Crutchlow in Barcelona

The British rider is aiming to be ok to compete at this weekend’s Andalucian GP

LCR Honda Castrol rider Cal Crutchlow has undergone successful surgery on his injured left wrist. The Briton reported a fracture to his left scaphoid after crashing during the Warm Up session at the Spanish GP on Sunday morning.  

Crutchlow starts race day in worst possible way at Turn 8

On Tuesday morning, Dr. Xavier Mir performed surgery on Crutchlow's wrist at the Hospital Universitari Quirón DEXEUS in Barcelona. The surgeon was pleased with how the procedure went as Crutchlow and the team aim to ride at the Andalucian GP this weekend.

Lucio Cecchinello: “I would like to thank Dr. Mir and his medical team for performing surgery on Cal’s left wrist this morning. A small screw has been inserted into his scaphoid to fix the fracture. The surgery went well as Dr. Mir personally informed me, and Cal will be discharged from the hospital later this afternoon. If everything goes well, we expect him back at the Angel Nieto Circuit in Jerez on Thursday morning, where he will be visited by Dorna’s Medical Director, Dr. Ángel Charte who will assess his fitness to race. Our technical staff is working to have everything ready to allow Cal to ride in Friday’s morning practice.”
