MotoAmerica: Escalante Undergoes Successful Surgery In Mexico

Richie Escalante, the 2020 MotoAmerica Supersport Champion, underwent successful surgery September 22 in Mexico City, Mexico.

On September 19, Escalante crashed during a wet MotoAmerica Supersport warm-up session at Barber Motorsports Park and rebroke the left collarbone he broke earlier in the 2021 season. The metal plate used to surgically repair the original fracture bent in the recent crash.

During last week’s surgery, doctors removed the bent plate and set and reinforced Escalante’s new fracture with a new metal plate and seven screws.

Escalante is currently recovering at his home in Tizayuca, Mexico.
