Surgery successful for de Puniet
24 November 2009 – Surgery has been completed on the left ankle of Randy de Puniet in order to extract several screws which had been implanted following a motocross accident this year. The 28-year-old is now recovering as Sepang testing slowly draws closer.
"It has been a very quick and easy operation," said a thankful de Puniet. "After the crash in August, I worked hard to get the best from the bike but sometimes it was very painful for me; after the races my ankle was always very swollen but now I'm very satisfied because the size is normal again."
He added that stitches will be removed in just over a fortnight's time before rehabilitation training begins prior to the all-important February testing in Malaysia.
