Honda denies news of Marc Marquez’s third surgery
Recently, reports circulated that Repsol Honda rider Marc Marquez would undergo a third operation related to his shoulder condition. However, the news was confirmed to be untrue, as confirmed directly by Honda.
Marc Marquez did suffer a fracture to his right humerus in the first series of this season. The injury made the rider absent in the next series.
It was predicted that he would recover quickly, but his condition got even worse, because the plate on his arm broke when he was about to open the window of his house.
As a result of the incident, Marc Marquez returned to the operating table and has been absent until now.
However, it was reported by Mundo Deportivo that the eight-time world champion was looking to carry out a third operation. This was done because he was not satisfied with the recovery process which was taking a long time.
This rumor was immediately denied by a spokesman for the Repsol Honda team to the media crew.
He acknowledged that the recovery process for Marc Marquez’s condition took a long time, although there are no plans to carry out more operations.
“The Repsol Honda Team wants to confirm that Marc Marquez’s recovery process is going according to plan. While this is indeed a long and intensive recovery, Marc and his team members have no reason to be worried,” wrote Repsol Honda.
In a separate place, Marc Marquez also tried to refute the issue via social media by uploading a photo of himself continuing the recovery process at his home, in Cervera, Spain.
“Continue recovery! # Rehabilitation” wrote the eight-time world champion.
Indeed, until now there is still no clarity about when Marc Marquez can continue his race again in the MotoGP event. However, the 27-year-old is predicted to return to action before the end of the 2020 season campaign.
What is clear, his absence makes the 2020 MotoGP competition look very consistent. There are no riders who dominate, and no one can predict the winner candidate at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, Alex Rins still leads the standings, but with a very thin distance. In fact, he was only 15 points ahead of 4th place, Dovizioso.
