Successful Compartment Syndrome Surgery For Pol Espargaro


Monster Yamaha Tech3 Team rider Pol Espargaró has undergone surgery on his right forearm in order to solve the issue known as ‘compartment syndrome’, or otherwise, arm pump. Espargaró experienced a large amount of discomfort in his arm during the previous Grand Prix race in France and suffered a loss of force that began during the 7th lap. This pain is not habitual and had just sporadically affected him before. Already after the race at the Grand Prix of Spain on the 3rd of May, the Spanish rider was experiencing pain and so a recovery process using physiotherapy was undertaken. However, the persistence of these symptoms signalled that a medical review was needed. Following this, it was decided that the rider should receive surgery immediately to begin his recovery process as soon as possible to arrive in the best condition for the next round of the MotoGP World Championship which is on May 31st in Mugello, Italy. The operation took place at the Hospital Nisa Pardo Aravaca (Madrid) and was successfully performed by Dr. Angel Villamor. Espargaró will be reviewed later this week.

Smith Shines On Tech3 Home Turf To Finish As Leading Satellite Rider


Bradley Smith completed a notable weekend at the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France in 6th position aboard the Yamaha YZR-M1. As the 28 lap battle commenced under glorious sunshine at the legendary Le Mans circuit, Smith undertook a strong start and fought his way through an intense first lap to hold on to his qualifying position of 6th. The young British rider tailed the leading riders before successfully catching and overtaking Marquez on lap five and then opening a gap on him. Smith’s formidable race rhythm and consistent lap times kept him in a fast pace and with half race distance reached, the 23 year old was running in 5th position. With 8 laps remaining, Smith had impressively closed the deficit to Andrea Iannone and was involved in a memorable and fierce fight for 4th position. Smith stayed right in the hunt and eventually finished the race in 6th but just a hair’s breadth back from Marquez and Iannone. This result puts him as the leading satellite rider at the round five battle and sees him now only one point behind 6th place in the riders championship standings.
