2013 MotoGP: Complete Collarbone Fracture for Dani Pedrosa
text size: A- A+
However, after some more accurate medical 3D CT investigations the Spaniard took in Barcelona after the Laguna Seca round revealed a complete fracture in his clavicula. Where's the luck, you might ask. Well, despite the bone being broken, it has not been displaced and this means no surgery is needed.
This comes just in time for the summer break, as Dani has two more weeks of rest and physiotherapy and can hope for a much better condition for the Indianapolis round on August 16-18.
“The race was quite unusual for me due to my injury, but anyway my feeling was ok and I finished not too far behind the leaders. The goal I set myself was to finish as close to the front as possible and I managed to do just that,” Pedrosa said on his blog.
Having finished in the fifth position at Laguna Seca, ahead of Jorge Lorenzo, Pedrosa is now second in the provisional standings, 16 points down from Marc Marquez and 10 points ahead of Jorge Lorenzo.
