Marquez suffers another blow to his 2015 season

MCE Insurance Marc Marquez hasn't had an easy ride so far in 2015, with five crashes and multiple injuries ending his MotoGP title hopes he has suffered another injury whilst out training with Brother Alex.

The Repsol Honda rider has fractured his fifth metacarpal on his left hand whilst on the outskirts of Cervera, Spain. He was quickly rushed to Dr. Xavier Mir, Head of the Hand and Upper Extremeties department of the Universaitario Dexeus Hospital.

Dr Mir declared the operation a success and commented "The surgery consisted of a reduction and internal fixation of the bone, through screws for compression and a neutralising titanium plate with six holes.

"After the insertion, the soft tissue has been closed up and we have placed a protective bandage around the finger, supporting it with the adjacent finger. Marc will remain in hospital for 24 hours, and in 48 hours will begin functional rehabilitation."

Marquez should be back in action in time for the Japanese MotoGP in a fortnight; however that is providing that his recovery goes to plan in the meantime.
