Pedrosa: Forearm healing well after surgery
14 May 2014 – Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa has said his right forearm has healed up well following surgery last week.
Pedrosa opted to have an operation after showing signs of compartmental syndrome or 'arm pump' as it is known in the bike racing community.
While the procedure was a success, however, he knows he is probably not going to be at 100 per cent this weekend for the MotoGP event at Le Mans.
"I enjoyed the weekend in Jerez, and the battle at the end with [Valentino] Rossi was a lot of fun. After Monday's test though, I had a tight feeling in my right forearm. On Tuesday morning I went to see Dr. Mir and he recommended surgery immediately. We took his advice and it seems to be healing up well but I guess I won't know until I'm back on the bike on Friday for FP1," he confirmed.
"I won for the first time in Le Mans in MotoGP last year in a very tough race," he added. "I enjoy the circuit and we've had good results there in the past but we must always pay attention to the weather!
"The testing in Jerez was useful [too] and we confirmed some feelings, now we must see if they translate to the track this weekend."
