Pedrosa undergoes hand operation.

Dani Pedrosa underwent a minor hand operation before Christmas.

Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa has had the supporting screw removed from an old hand injury in an operation he hopes will allow him greater control in 2010.

The Spaniard underwent the minor procedure at the USP Institut Universitari Dexeus in Barcelona, with the screw being removed from an old fracture in his left hand. He also had the extensor tendons 'eased' in the same hand in an effort to allow him greater freedom of movement in his wrist. He was discharged the same day, and spent Christmas at home.

Dr Xavier Mir, the head of hand surgery, believes that Pedrosa could begin his full recovery in around a fortnight.

Like him or not, he doesn't give up and has taken a physical beating while in MotoGP and still keeps at it. He seems to rub his team mates the wrong way, but I personally have been impressed with him this year. He A) re-passed people after getting passed by them, and B) he smiled more when he was on the podium and actually seemed to be enjoying himself. Its good to see him relaxing some and enjoying it a bit more.

Hmmm.....now if only my boy Casey Stoner could have some real injuries to show like that, instead of the dumb mystery illness. Perhaps he may also need a personality implant even more so than Danny boy. Yep ... you can all rake me over the hot coals, but I've had my fill of Stoner. I will not go down his path for 2010 defending him for his BS stunts and tantrums. Peace and goodwill to all for 2010.
