MotoGP Assen: Bradl expecting surgery after scaphoid fracture

"I broke my right scaphoid in the impact and I probably will have to undergo surgery" - Stefan Bradl.
Stefan Bradl is expecting surgery after fracturing the scaphoid bone in his right wrist during a fall in Saturday's Dutch MotoGP at Assen.

The German was the top Open rider in 15th when he lost the rear of his Forward Yamaha. Bradl immediately left the track for Munich where he will probably have surgery in the next few days.

“Too bad, my race ended earlier than expected when I was leading the Open class and I was close to the points," Bradl said. "I lost the rear and I could not do anything to prevent the fall. Unfortunately I broke my right scaphoid in the impact and I probably will have to undergo surgery.”

Bradl now faces a race against time to be fit for his home round at the Sachsenring on July 12.

Having seen his good and solid result in Catalnia and the good form (maybe the best in this season) throughout the practice sessions in this weekend, it seemed to be a cinch for him to achieve the top open result this time in Assen. He had been plagued by some bad luck throughout the early phase of the season (although Crash hardly ever cover those), and we can say that those bad luck belied his true performance to some extent. The latest result in Catalnia seemed to indicate a change in his fortunes. But......, He indeed crashes way tooooooo often! Only the positive thing for him could be the fact that no one in the factory class (those 14 excluding two Aprilias) crashed this time and he had only missed out on taking single point.
