More surgery for Pedrosa

The Repsol Honda team has released an official statement confirming that Dani Pedrosa will require another operation after this weekend’s race at Jerez. The Spaniard has been diagnosed with intermittent compression of the subclavian artery, resulting in numbness and a general lack of strength in the left arm.

The operation will follow earlier surgery for the Barcelona man in October of last year, which settled a double fracture of the left collarbone following his crash in Japan.

“It’s never nice to have an operation, but we've had a lot of time searching for an answer to the effects of this injury and I’m relaxed because I finally know what has happened," Pedrosa commented on Thursday afternoon.

“Now, we are in Jerez and I want to concentrate on the race, working with my team in best possible way to prepare the Grand Prix.

“This race is special, the crowd is always there to give you an extra point and I hope it helps me, as always. I like the track, I’ve had always good results here and I face the weekend with an open mind, trying to do my best in my current condition."
