    Repsol Honda Team rider Dani Pedrosa has undergone surgery to his right to treat the injury suffered in a crash during Sunday’s race at the Argentina Grand Prix.

    The Spaniard crashed out of the postponed race before the end of the first lap when he was pushed off the dry line following a move by Johann Zarco – violently highsiding as he tapped on the throttle on the wet asphalt.

    A 3D CT scan confirmed that Dani had suffered an intra-articular fracture of the right distal radius.

    An operation in Barcelona saw a fracture reduction and internal fixation with a titanium screw carried out by Dr. Xavier Mir and his team from the Catalan Institute of Traumatology and Sports Medicine (ICATME) at the Dexeus Hospital.

    The result of the operation was satisfactory, and Pedrosa will undergo an evaluation of his progress in 48 hours. If the results are positive, he will be able to begin his rehabilitation on Saturday.

    His progress will dictate whether he races in the Austin GP in two weeks.
