Spaniard Jorge Prado has had surgery on the armpit he hurt when he wiped out Jeffrey Herlings in a finish-line clash in the German GP on Sunday. He says he won’t know when he’ll be back on the bike but is now fourth in the series, 31 points behind leader Tim Gajser.
Prado said: “Thank you for the messages of encouragement and for being so concerned about my health. As you know, after winning the first moto at the German GP, Jeffrey and I collided after the finish line, digging the handlebars into my armpit and having to undergo surgery that same night. Fortunately everything went well, but I don’t know the real extent of the injury. See you soon.”
