Moncayo to ride at Misano – No broken collarbone after all
Alberto Moncayo has been examined in the Dexeus clinic today by Dr. Mir and after having been misdiagnosed with a broken collarbone earlier, today he underwent various tests that have ruled out that injury and he can participate in the San Marino Grand Prix, taking place this weekend.
Alberto Moncayo is already packing. Tommorow he will leave for Misano where the 13th Grand Prix of the season will take place, a GP that will not start without the rider from Cadiz.
Last weekend Alberto suffered a very hard crash in the third free practice at Indianapolis when he was leading the time sheets. He had lost the rear at the entry of a corner and flew off his bike, landing with a big hit on his right shoulder.
He was quickly treated by doctors at the circuit, but he was then transferred to a hospital, because there were signs that he had fractured his collarbone, an injury that was not entirely clear and which has now been disproved by Dr. Mir at the Dexeus Clinic.
Alberto Moncayo underwent a CAT scan, a 3D x-ray and an ultrasound exam which allowed Dr. Mir to rule out a fracture and determine that it was instead a dislocation with a torn muscle which won’t stop Moncayo from participating in the race this weekend.
Alberto has been given a treatment which will allow him to participate in the San Marino Grand Prix and although he won’t be at 100%, he can get on the bike and ride without too much pain.
Alberto Moncayo: “Today I had an appointment at nine o’clock in the Dexeus Clinic where I have gotten the first tests and a CT scan which already showed that there was no fracture. In the afternoon Dr. Mir has continued with the medical examination, confirming that there was no fracture or crack and that it was a dislocation with a torn muscle. I did an ultrasound exam to see what muscles are affected the most and had injections in the most damaged areas, which will help me to recover quickly and minimize the pain throughout the weekend.
Frankly, I am very happy, because I am 200% motivated right now and I just think of riding the bike. I really want to continue the good work we were doing these days and although it will not be easy I hope to repeat or improve the result from Brno.
Finally, I want to use this opportunity to thank Claudia, my girlfriend, who has accompanied me during all these days. This has been a lot easier with her at my side.”
