GP Japan – MotoGP: Dani Pedrosa breaks collarbone in Motegi


Dani Pedrosa has suffered a fracture of his right clavicle during the dispute of the free GP of Japan MotoGP. The Spanish rider of the Repsol Honda was the star of a hard and cumbersome ‘highside’, impacting against the asphalt of the loophole of the curve 11 with great violence. After the first explorations, Dani Pedrosa has decided to travel immediately to Barcelona in order to undergo surgery as soon as possible. Your presence at Motegi is discarded, while its involvement in the two Big Prizes remaining on the asian tour, is still pending of the evolution of the pilot.

Pedrosa began the GP of Japan, home race for his team, in the worst possible way after suffering this accident in which he ended up flying over his Honda RC213V in the closing stages of FP2. After confirming his injury in the clinic of the circuit, the spaniard has chosen to remedy the injury in the quickest way possible. All in all, it is likely that Hiroshi Aoyama will be your substitute at Motegi or in default on the rest of quotes you may lose the pilot of Castellar del Vallés during the asian tour.

Although a broken collarbone may be considered a lesser evil, after the violent fall suffered by Dani Pedrosa in Motegi, the history of Catalan with this type of injury is very dilated. We must go back to the 2011 season to witness a fracture of his right collarbone after suffering a fall at Le Mans when he fought with the late Marco Simoncelli, which caused him to miss the following three races. For his part, the latest fracture in his left collarbone dates 2013. An injury is very untimely that snatched the lead of the MotoGP during this season.

And now is Pedrosa going to the ground in a nasty fall… #JapaneseGP
