Marquez Breaks Hand again - Mountain bikes are Dangerous

From Krops site - https://motomatters.com/news/2015/09...d_while_t.html



Marc Marquez has broken his left hand for the second time this season. While out training on a mountain bike, the reigning MotoGP champion fell, and fractured the fifth metacarpal of his left hand. He underwent surgery on Wednesday morning at the Dexeus Institut in Barcelona to fix the bone. Dr Mir inserted a titanium plate to stabilize the bone.

Marquez will start physical rehabilitation immediately, and intends to fly to Japan and contest the three flyaway rounds of MotoGP, at Motegi, Phillip Island and Sepang.

This is the second time he has injured his left hand this year. Before the Jerez race, Marquez crashed while riding dirt track, and fractured a phalange bone in his left pinky finger. This injury is to the same finger structure, the fifth metacarpal being the bone in the hand which the pinky finger is connected to.


Below is the press release from HRC on Marquez' injury:

Marc Marquez undergoes successful operation on left hand fracture after mountain bike crash

Reigning MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez was operated on this morning at the Universitario Dexeus Hospital in Barcelona, to treat a fracture to the fifth metacarpal of his left hand. The Repsol Honda rider suffered the fracture on Tuesday whilst mountain bike training on the outskirts of Cervera. The operation was carried out by Dr. Xavier Mir, Head of the Hand and Upper Extremities department of the Universitario Dexeus Hospital, who declared the operation a success. If post-operation recovery goes as expected, Marc should be fine to ride in the Japanese Grand Prix, which takes place in ten days’ time at Motegi.

After the surgery, Dr. Mir stated: “We have operated on Marc Marquez to treat a torsion fracture of the fifth metacarpal of his left hand. The surgery consisted of a reduction and internal fixation of the bone, through screws for compression and a neutralising titanium plate with six holes. After the insertion, the soft tissue has been closed up and we have placed a protective bandage around the finger, supporting it with the adjacent finger. Marc will remain in hospital for 24 hours, and in 48 hours will begin functional rehabilitation.”

Bayliss isn't too shabby. When he was racing, he was good enough to be a professional domestique. Wouldn't have won the Tour de France, but could have put in the leg work between climbs to help someone else win it. Crutchlow is pretty good on a bicycle too, trains with Cavendish, and makes Cavendish's life hard sometimes.

I remember talking to a guy in NSW a few years back who reckoned that Stoner was pretty damn good back in the day in the hills.

This guys was a national level MTB rider who relayed that he was powering up a hill and CS came past with a pack of riders as if he were standing still ............ he admitted that it destroyed his ego (story dated back to around 2007/2008).

Have heard that Bayliss was very good as well so good to see it confirmed.

Wonder how HRC and the other factories truly feel when this sh*t happens ....... bet they are none to happy with it but they also realise that it is this training that helps make the rider who and what they are

Ive crashed countless times on my motorcycle. Never been seriously hurt. My worst injuries have been mountain biking.

Anyway, more importantly...is this good news for Lorenzo?

Possibly no, If he was quicker than MM in the las 4 rounds. In that case he'd be hoping for someone between himself and Rossi.

I think an injured Marc is faster than VR. Speculation of course, as im assuming if he plans om flying to Motegi it's not that bad, but these kids heal fast. And as all GP racers, tough.

In Marc defense, the course was tough. Some serious cross training.

I thought Ben Speez was reasonable on a road bike as well. At any rate, it is bizarre how often Marc crashes his GP bike without injury to hurt himself twice on bicycles.

Maybe he should mountain bike in leathers.
