Marc Marquez was declared fit to race this weekend at the Jerez track after passing the medical check-up. This is hard to believe how the Spanish rider managed to recover so fast just two days after undergoing surgery on a fractured humerus. Alongside the rider, also Alex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar) and Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Castrol) were declared fit to race on Sunday.
Yes, it’s official. Marc Marquez will race at this weekend’s Gran Premio Red Bull de Andalucia after passing a medical check-up at Jerez. The rider arrived at the Jerez track this morning from Barcelona according to MotoGP.
This means, that Marc Marquez will put his helmet on and ride his Honda RC213V bike at the second MotoGP race of the 2020 season. It’s a performance itself considering that not even doctors Xavier Mir and Sergio Barrera who performed the surgery or the Repsol Honda MotoGP team expected the rider to be fit after the Spanish suffered a fractured right humerus as a result to a high-side crash in the latest race.
It was regarding the rider’s radial nerve which remained intact after the crash and due to the fact that it’s responsible for the ability of the arm for wrist movement, fingers extension, basically, the ability to race a motorcycle around the track. It’ll be interesting to see how fast Marc Marquez can race his bike in Jerez and we’re eager to see him race so soon after his crash.
Alongside Marc Marquez, Alex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar) and Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Castrol) have also been declared fit to ride in Jerez this weekend. Crutchlow also had surgery this Tuesday to fix a small scaphoid fracture, so it’s quite impressive to see the three MotoGP riders race so soon after their crashes.
