APRILIA RACING – UPDATE ON ALEIX ESPARGARÓ

Following fatigue in his right forearm, which occurred during the recent MotoGP tests at Portimao, Aprilia Racing rider Aleix Espargaró underwent a series of tests between yesterday and today at the Dexeus University Clinic in Barcelona. The checks revealed a fibrosis in the muscle for which a surgical operation was necessary.

The cleaning operation, carried out today, was largely successful and will allow the rider to recover in view of the first race of the season, scheduled for the weekend of 24-26 March.

Dr. XAVIER MIR – MD PhD

“Aleix Espargaró underwent surgery on his right forearm, due to a fibrotic retraction of the forearm fascia with compression of the median nerve in the proximal third of the forearm. An antebrachial fasciotomy and an arch release of the pronator teres muscle was performed using microsurgical techniques. He will start his recovery as soon as tomorrow”.
