 In MotoGP, News

Yesterday, three weeks after having his left leg operated on to rebuild both the fibula and the tibia, Héctor Barberà was back at the Instituto Universitario USP Dexeus in Barcelona.

This time fortunately it was only to submit Héctor to a medical examination made by Doctor Xavier Mir, the specialist who carried out the operation on Hector’s leg, to evaluate the progress of the patient. In the last weeks Hèctor worked on passive therapy only, two times each day. The Spaniard did intensive work to complete this first rehabilitation phase and after Doctor Mir’’s consulting he can begin also with the active physical therapy.

The Pramac Racing Team, in agreement with the Spaniard, confirmed that Hèctor will ride again at the Grand Prix Ceské Republiky, which will take place in Brno in two weeks’ time. With the approval of Doctor Mir, Barberà is now able to start active physical therapy, working both in the swimming pool and in the gym.

Héctor will be replaced at Indianpolis by Toni Elias, who already rode for the Pramac Racing Team in the last round that at Laguna Seca two week ago. Toni has another opportunity to show his potential at the mythical Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Héctor Barberà “Firstly, I want to thank everybody for all their messages of support since the day of my surgery. The support and love has been overwhelming and it has been a great comfort to me at this difficult time. I’m undergoing rehab on my leg; the situation is improving. It’s been three weeks since the operation and yesterday Doctor Mir evaluated my physical progress. Now I’’m able to give the leg an active workout, in the pool and in the gym, to get ready for the 12th round of this season in Brno. I will have to work as fast as I can, but I hope to be in good shape for the Grand Prix Ceské Republiky.”
