HRC Press Release Confirms Marc Marquez Breaks Leg, To Miss Sepang Test

The Repsol Honda team have released the following press release, confirming that Marc Marquez has broken his leg in a training crash. No surgery will be needed on the leg, but Marquez will miss the Sepang test, and possibly the Phillip Island test as well:


Marquez to miss Malaysia Test

MotoGP World Champion, Marc Marquez, has broken his fibula during a dirt-track training session in Lleida, west of Barcelona, yesterday afternoon.

Marc was immediately taken to the Universitario Quirón Dexeus Hospital where Dr. Xavier Mir treated the spiral fracture of the distal third of his right fibula. After carrying out a CT scan and X-ray, Dr. Mir confirmed, “The results showed no ligament damage or dislocation and no need to proceed with surgery. I expect he will need 3-4 weeks to fully recover”

Marc has already started rehabilitation with magnetic therapy. He will remain non-weight bearing for two weeks, meaning he will certainly miss next week’s Sepang test and possibly the following week in Phillip Island, Australia. Full recovery is expected for the Qatar MotoGP race on 23 March.

As soon as there is more information on his condition and expected recovery, it will be shared with the media.

In a way he's still very lucky, three to four weeks to get back and the season starts in... four weeks.

BUT DAMN IT MARC TAKE IT EASY!

Nice of you to give Yamaha a little hope though.

Im probably wrong, but isnt there a major nerve runs along that bone.
I see they say no ligament damage which is unusual too for that kind of fracture.
Im not saying anything to be worried about - But I think the usual effect is numb feet occasionally ?
probably nothing to worry about in the braking foot.
