    Great to have this new thread! What a nice race to start with! Rossi really surprised me cause the Duc's were a lot faster on the straight line! Iam happy for Vale but to be honest I hoped for Dovizioso to win it!

    It was a brilliant race to watch. I'd have liked Iannone to pip Dovi to second place though... I do have a liking for nutters.

    For unspecified period of time until he fixes his chronic issue not forever :)

    Well he has already had an operation on his arm last year and it didn't fix it - now it's inoperable and he's still suffering from the same issue. Interesting that this has only come to light now, I didn't hear him mention it post-op last season. I don't think rest fixes arm pump to be honest.

    Nah. Dani is another Rubens, Eddie, Webber, Coulthard. Great drivers/riders but never quite championship material, all capable of being best of the rest.

    Yeah, hats off to Vale, still an unbelievable talent, but I really wanted Dovi to win too, hopefully it will be soon...

    Rob... gotta agree with Ste, think Dani's got two chances, fat or slim... he couldn't live with the likes of Stoner, Rossi or George, and Marquez destroyed him, there's always been someone better, I just can't see it happening now...

    Well I think Dani is just not good enough to win a title anymore but I still really like him so I would be sad if he really has to quit now

    Gutted for Dani, he's constantly blighted by injury. I hope it's not the end for him, but it doesn't look too promising.
    If he has to take time out and/or retire, I wonder who will get his bike.

    Hopefully the latter doesn't happen, they'd struggle to find anyone better as a teammate to Marquez I think.

    Maybe Stoner can come back and upset the apple cart a little!

    Despite Dani suggesting another surgery isn't possible, he's set to undergo another operation shortly. Here's what HRC and the media have said:

    HRC say Dani Pedrosa to have more arm pump surgery tomorrow. Recovery time is 4-6 weeks, so Dani will sit out Austin and Argentina. Hiroshi Aoyama to replace him.

    Important line at the end of HRC's release: "His return to racing won't be confirmed until doctors can ascertain the success of the surgery"

    Successful surgery for Pedrosa in Madrid

    Dani Pedrosa underwent surgery on Friday morning in Madrid to solve his arm pump problem.
    Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa underwent surgery this morning in Madrid, performed by Dr. Angel Villamor – orthopaedic surgeon and Medical Director of iQtra Medicina Avanzada. The surgery, aimed to fix Dani’s problematic arm pump, took just over 2 hours with Dr. Villamor confident of its success.

    The operation, aimed to fix Dani’s problematic arm pump, took just over 2 hours with Dr. Villamor confident of its success. During today’s surgery, Dr. Villamor completely removed the layer of fascia – the casing around the muscle that gives it form and shape – which is causing problems for Dani.

    It is expected that Dani will be discharged from the hospital in a few hours, after confirming that his post-operative evolution is positive. He will visit Dr. Villamor regularly in the coming weeks for check ups and then begin a custom physiotherapy program. A recovery time of 4 to 6 weeks is expected, however his return to racing won’t be confirmed until Dr. Villamor can ascertain the success of the surgery.

    Dr. Angel Villamor:
    “The surgery was complicated and aggressive using a microsurgery technique and microscopic lens. It lasted two hours, and was done under a local anaesthetic. We examined the muscle fascia, which were hypertrophied and had to be opened up and released. The muscle fascia has been dissected and removed from the forearm. This increased volume engorged the muscle within the inelastic fascia resulting in increased pressure within the compartment, and causing a painful condition of oxygen deprivation – thus causing intense pain in the forearm which collapsed after exercising during riding. We will now monitor Dani over the next few weeks to measure the success of this surgery.”

    Aoyama to replace Pedrosa for Austin & Argentina

    Hiroshi Aoyama will replace the Factory Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa with immediate effect, as he has surgery to fix his arm-pump issues.
    Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa will unfortunately need further surgery to fix his arm pump issues that continued to plague the Spanish rider during the first round of the 2015 MotoGP Championship.

    This common problem among motorcycle racers is a build-up of pressure in the forearm causing great pain, and makes riding a bike exceptionally difficult when the muscle becomes too big for the ‘sack’ that it sits in.

    Dani tried very hard over the winter in order to find a solution, after struggling to perform at his top level throughout the 2014 season, and even had surgery last year – after the Jerez GP – but it was unsuccessful. During this time doctors advised against any further surgery. Then throughout all of the winter testing it seemed that in theory the problem was solved, unfortunately the issue came back again under the stresses of the race situation.

    After his sixth place finish in the opening race of 2015 in Qatar last weekend, Dani returned to Spain on Monday and met with specialists in Barcelona and Madrid. Their recommendation was for him to undergo surgery as soon as possible, which Dr. Angel Villamor will perform in Madrid. Special attention will be paid to the closing of the wound as this will guarantee better recovery and less risk of the problem arising again in the future.

    Surgery is planned for the morning of Friday 3rd April with an expected recovery time of four to six weeks, this means Dani will certainly miss the Red Bull Austin and Argentina races. His return to racing won’t be confirmed until doctors can ascertain the success of the surgery.

    His replacement will be HRC test rider Hiroshi Aoyama.

    Dani Pedrosa:
    "Obviously this isn’t the news I wanted to be sharing with everyone. However, after speaking with some key doctors and medical professionals that I trust, they are all in agreement that this is the only option for me. We will have the surgery on Friday and they will use a special technique to help close the wound to try and prevent this issue continuing to affect me. Let’s hope it’s a success. I want to thank all my fans for their support, but especially Honda, Repsol, Red Bull and all our sponsors for their understanding in this matter."
