Marcel Schrötter underwent successful hand surgery in Barcelona
After successful surgery on his left hand at the Dexeus University Hospital in Barcelona, the LIQUI MOLY Intact GP rider is already on his way home and is focusing on a quick return to the race track next week in Qatar.
Just hours after his unfortunate crash in the first session of the final Portimao test day, Marcel Schrötter flew to Barcelona on Monday to seek the care of Dr. Mir's surgical team at the Dexeus University Hospital. The 29-year-old suffered a fracture to the small outer metacarpal bone of his left hand in the crash on the last fast corner of the Algarve Circuit. On Tuesday afternoon, the fracture could be fixed with two screws.
Today, Wednesday, the LIQUI MOLY Intact GP rider is already traveling home, where he wants to immediately start making preparations for the first race of the year next week in Qatar. Because his goal is to be back on his Kalex by then!
