Hernandez surgery ahead of MotoGP season

6 December 2011

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).
