Marc Marquez Breaks Right Arm in Jerez

July 19th brought the official return of MotoGP after being postponed for months following the COVID-19 pandemic. It proved an exciting day for most motorcyclists, with the exception going towards Marc Marquez. Jerez proved costly for Marquez after an unexpected crash forced his right arm to break. This injury comes after the reigning MotoGP World Champions shoulder was injured last season, with it finalizing the healing process weeks ago.

Repsol Honda provided clarification over the condition of Marc Marquez, indicating that their champion had undergone an operation that doctors have deemed successful. Team Media Personnel indicated that additional damage to Marc’s shoulder hadn’t been sustained. Doctors were shocked by that reality, with Marquez having crashed earlier during training & then again at the official Grand Prix. It shows the astonishing luck that Marc Marquez continues to enjoy.

After Marc Marquez flew towards the gravel & was dragged across by his Repsol Honda Motorcycle for nearly 500 metres, it’d take MotoGP Medical Staff less than a minute to assist Marc. They’d immediately fitted with a neck brace. An ambulance arrived after hightailing it down the Jerez Circuit, with Spanish Paramedics safely transferring Marquez from the gravel & into the ambulance.

Barcelona Doctors Assist Marquez

Dexeus Hospital in Barcelona couldn’t assist Marc Marquez with an innovative surgery until 48-Hours after the fracture. There reasoning is because the broken bones must 1st settle before being surgically repaired. Marc Marquez was fitted with a temporary plaster cast & armbrace from July 19th to 21st.

Surgery was performed by Doctor Xavier Mir, with his team confirming that Marc Marquez’s radial nerve hadn’t been damaged during his collision at Jerez. This guarantees that after an unknown period of healing, Marc will be permitted to return without any difficulties from Dorna Sports. It should be clarified that this surgery required the usage of several screws & a titanium plate.

The Team Boss of Repsol Honda, Alberto Puig, provided additional clarified on Marc’s healing period. Alberto emphasized that Marc’s condition will be discussed with medical professionals & his return determined by how the healing process unfolds.
