Jorge Prado undergoes successful surgery after training crash

Double FIM MX2 Motocross World Champion Jorge Prado is recovering from a procedure to fix his right collarbone after a fall while training in Belgium on Tuesday.

The 19 year old MXGP class rookie for 2020 suffered a clean break in the wake of his tumble at a circuit in Olmen, Belgium. He was transported to hospital in Herentals for examination and x-rays and entered corrective surgery the same day, performed by Dr Tom Claes, who inserted a plate to help re-join and support the bone.

A scan late Tuesday evening showed the operation had been a success and Prado is expected to be back at his residence today [Wednesday]. Early indications point to a four-week rehabilitation phase if the injury heals well and the Spaniard can ride his KTM 450 SX-F once more.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs disappointing to be dealing with another injury but I‰Ûªm really happy with how the operation went and how the collarbone is looking," Prado said.

"I was riding through a fast corner and there was a rider ahead of me; I just misjudged the line. I lost the front end and went over the handlebars. At first I wasn‰Ûªt sure if I‰Ûªd broken anything but after about thirty minutes it was clear that something was wrong. Anyway, we are on the recovery path again and I hope to be able to do some training again after about a week and we‰Ûªll wait another three to be back on the bike. Luckily we have some time before the races start again.‰Û
