Neukirchner on the mend after surgery

Max Neukirchner is on the road to recovery having undergone a lengthy six hour operation to repair damaged bones in his right leg following his accident in the World Superbike event at Monza.

The German broke his femur when he was impacted by Brendan Roberts' rider-less Guandalini Ducati at the start of the first race in Italy.

Being taken to a local hospital, Neukirchner subsequently underwent an operation to correct the injuries in his right leg, with doctors labelling it a success and foreseeing no reason why he cannot make a full recovery.

Remaining in hospital for the next few days, Neukrichner described the pain as 'unbearable'.

"I remember everything and I can tell you that the pain was unbearable. As soon as the doctors give me the green light, I want to go home immediately.”

At last, a real human bike racer! Never mind all this nonsense about "give me a quick injection and I'll do the next race". Max is honest enough to admit the pain is unbearable and that makes me think he's just like the rest of us mere mortals. I wish you all the best for your recovery Max. That was a tough one and I hope you are not in too much pain for too long.
