Spanish MotoGP champion Marc Marquez plans to return to racing as early as round three, following successful surgery to his right arm.
Overseas publication GPOne reports that concerns of radial nerve damage have been dispelled, and a plate has been inserted to allow the three fractures in his right humerus to heal as quickly as possible.
Round three of the 2020 MotoGP season will take place on August 9th at Brno, in the Czech Republic, and the HRC team says it will do all it can to get its star racer back on track.
As previously reported, Marquez suffered a serious accident last weekend on turn three at Jerez. MotoGP traumatology specialist Dr Mir later confirmed that Marquez fractured his humerus during the incident.
More to come.
