Marc Marquez will have shoulder surgery today after the MotoGP world champion was second-quickest in season-ending testing at Jerez.
The Honda rider suffered a serious injury to his left shoulder last year and wants to prevent the current problem with his right shoulder from escalating.
“Tomorrow (Wednesday) I have a surgery to fix the problem (luxation) in the right shoulder, the same problem as last year in the left shoulder," said Spaniard Marquez, who suffered numerous crashes on the way to a sixth top-class world title in 2019.
“As everyone knows, last winter was very tough for me with the operation on the left shoulder, which was very, very damaged.
“I want to avoid the situation where my right shoulder is in this condition in the future."
