3rd Surgery For Marc...

The latest reports are that Marc requires a 3rd surgery on his arm as the bone has not healed well enough to be structurally sound.

The 3rd surgery will most likely invoice a bone graft from his pelvis and has a long recovery time (12 weeks of immobilisation/restricted movement before rehab can even start).

Honda aren't confirming this yet, but they are not denying it either.

Apparently, this is why Dovi hasn't taken a test rider role for next year. He's thinks there is a good chance that he will be jumping on Marc's bike at the start of the season...

I was hoping this would not be the case but I've seen this sort of situation before where there's poor healing with the need for further surgery and bone grafting.

This could well be career altering unfortunately. Wrong limb is the problem. With a leg, he could do a Doohan. However, the upper limbs take a lot of force under braking.

This final procedure had better work.

Here's hoping it does work.
Love watching him test, find and push the limit and his will to win.
He may have to tone it down a bit.
If this doesn't make him more conservative it's hard to see what will.

Sir, we have drilled too many holes into your bone, it looks like swiss cheese now. This is creepy.

It was always going to be this way with him.

Riding like that something like this was bound to happen, as has been pointed out many times.

Let’s see if he can pull through, here’s to hoping and pulling for him.

IMO it wasn’t his riding or the crash that was the main problem. I know this is what everyone is focussing on. What caused the problem was him deciding he needed to back so soon. Hindsight is 20/20 but he could missed the opening 2 or 3 rounds and been in a position now to win the title and at worst be in a better position for next year. By willing himself to be ready for round 2 he’s put a lot in jeopardy, that’s the lesson here IMO. Crashes happen to everyone, yes more often to him. But being hit by the bike and it breaking your arm is just bad luck.

People atm are loving be able to stand up and say I told you so, with a potentially career ending crash.

Now next issue is coming into play. Allegedly HRC is not happy, they feel they have not informed sufficiently by Marc and his management team about his condition.

What if Marc is now the one who is going to get a sabbatical ... and then join Ducati perhaps? This is just my fantasy, there is no reason to believe anything like this is even possible.

I agree. A serious error was made in thinking that he could return that early with such an injury and compete at such a high level. This wasn't a fractured clavicle.

You have been correct about this medically all along, it looks like vascularisation has ended up being the problem if they are talking bone grafts, and whichever doctors thought the early return was a good idea should probably look for a different profession.

MM and team have always made their own choices as well though, and have never been particularly amenable to taking advice from Honda or anyone else, cf the Willairot thing, PI 2013, and the whole 2015 season.

I get your point. However, his coming back too soon is the same symptom as trying to prove in practice that the young whippersnappers neednít bother. Just unnecessary in the larger frame of important things. This failure to be able to hold back just a little has been with him since day one and shows no sign of receding.

Sure getting hit by the bike in the accident was bad luck but if he hadnít been pushing so hard it would not have happened.
