Hungarian pair plotting Aragon comeback

9 March 2013

Gabor Talmacsi and Balazs Nemeth are both working towards a return to World Supersport action for the second round of the season at Motorland Aragon after injuring themselves in accidents at Phillip Island.

Former 125GP champion Talmacsi was one of several riders to endure a heavy tumble during a chaotic FP1 session in Australia, the Hungarian suffering a broken jaw.

Talmacsi, who is competing for Pro Race Honda in 2013, has since gone under the knife to have his wisdom teeth removed and had a metal plate inserted into his jaw. Despite this, he is hoping to be fit in time for the Spanish event on April 14th.

"First of all, I'd like to reassure everyone that I'm fine" he said. "Of course I still have pain, but I really hope to be ready to race soon. I would like to thank Prof. József Piffkó DMD, MD Head of Department, who performed the surgery and Dr. Emil Segatto. I will do my best to recover as fast as possible!"

Nemeth, meanwhile, was forced to skip the Phillip Island race when he suffered a broken collarbone in a crash during qualifying, but the Com Plus SMS Honda rider is on course for a swift return too.

"I had a successful surgery after I broke my left clavicle in Phillip Island in QP1. My rehabilitation began immediately with the leadership of Dr. Attila Pavlik. They will remove my stitches shortly and then an intensive phase of rehabilitation will begin.

“According to the doctors I am able to ride 4-6 weeks after the crash but we are speeding up the healing with alternative therapies so I have a good chance to be on the grid in Aragon.”
