“I hope he will recover soon”
The GP de la Comunitat Valenciana didn't start in the best way for the Humangest Racing Team.
During the morning free practice, Yuki Takahashi crashed out and fractured the right femur and tibia.
Takahashi immediately received
first aid by the Clinica medica's doctors and then he has been taken to the ‘9 Ottobre' hospital in Valencia, where he will undergo surgery this evening both right femur and tibia as medical check exclude from any dangerous infection.
This is a bad injury after a crash that didn't seem to be so dramatic. Unfortunately, the consequences are heavy even though Yuki has been conscious throughout.
Of course, the title battle is now in second place; the fight is between Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso, who has to recover 13 points from the Spaniard rider.
“I don't really like this track, I don't have fun riding here because it's too slow and there are many tight turns; this doesn't help me. We are not too far from the top riders but we have to fix more precisely the set-up and I have to ride better.
Still there is the hope to take the title, but it's hard and many things need to happen”, said Dovizioso. “Also, my team-mate got badly injured and he will not help me. I hope he will recover as soon as possible”.
