Pedrosa Undergoes Arm Surgery After Jerez MotoGP Race

Repsol Honda Racer Dani Pedrosa Undergoes Operation On Right Forearm Tuesday Afternoon

Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa, who finished third at Jerez recently, congratulates second place finisher Valentino Rossi after Sunday's race.

Dani Pedrosa has emerged from successful surgery in order to address an issue with arm pump. The procedure was performed at the Quiron Dexeus University Hospital in Barcelona, Spain, by Dr. Xavier Mir. Pedrosa had begun to feel the affects of arm pump several days ago. He will now rest in order to be fully fit for the next Grand Prix, with the fifth round of the season taking place at Le Mans in France in May.

Pedrosa has finished on the podium in the last eight races, dating back to his victory in Malaysia last October. Fresh from finishing third in Jerez last weekend, he currently is second in the Riders’ Championship, 28 points behind teammate Marc Marquez.
