Surgery for Hernandez

Yonny Hernandez, who is set to graduate to MotoGP next season on a BQR-run FTR-Kawasaki, has undergone wrist surgery.

The 23-year-old Colombian sustained a left wrist dislocation during the Czech Republic Moto2 Grand Prix, at Brno in August, and was operated on by Dr. Angel Villamor at a clinic in Madrid shortly afterwards.

Hernandez missed the next three events as a result of his injuries.

This week's second surgery, carried out by Doctor Xavier Mir at the USP Dexeus in Barcelona, was to correct a ligament tear from the same accident.

Since the season ended Hernandez - who has finished 21st and then 19th in his two grand prix seasons with BQR in Moto2 - has tested the team's CRT MotoGP bike (alongside Ivan Silva) at Valencia and Jerez (pictured).

Wow... OK. Not to sound like a douche bag, but the guy's finished 21st & 19th in his last two seasons respectively. IN MOTO2?! And people are wondering why the bikes aren't putting out competitive, or at least, promising times?!?!?!! I bet Iannone / Bradl / Marcquez / even Redding would put MUCH better times down. Not to mention faster, more experienced MotoGP (even WSBK riders).

Yonny is super talented, he has run at the front of races in MOTO2, been fastest in testing, that is not for no talent muppets. His style, as others have said, is lurid, great racer and fantastic news for the sport to see riders from all sorts of countries making their mark. His size may well be a factor, seem to recall he is pretty large so could go well on a 1000. Yonny is Colombian, fantastic people, so happy to see him get a chance rather than just another spaniard.
