PRAMAC RACING TEAM RIDER HECTOR BARBERA INJURED IN TRAINING INCIDENT

The 2012 Pramac Racing's sole rider Hèctor Barberà yesterday suffered injuries, during a training mishap near his home, in Spain. Hèctor has broken his left fibula and shinbone while he was training for the next MotoGP round which takes place in the U.S. in a week.

Tomorrow morning Hèctor will undergo surgery at the Insitituto Universitario DEXEUS in Barcellona. Dr. Xavier Mir, chief of the plastic surgery's unit, and his crew will perform the surgery.
Doctor Mir had previously treated Hèctor for the injures he sustained in 2010.

Tomorrow afternoon Dr.Mir will re-examine Barberà to determine the estimated recovery time needed in order to see the Spaniard back on his Ducati.

The Pramac Racing Team will wait for the surgery's result to decide the plans for the foreseeable future.
