Dani Pedrosa looks forward to his recuperation period, having undergone surgery in Barcelona on Thursday immediately after the test session in Valencia.

The operation, carried out by Dr. Xavier Mir at Barcelona’s Quiron Dexeus University Hospital, involved removing a plate and 13 screws from the Team rider’s right collarbone. These had been inserted after the Spaniard was injured in a crash with Marco Simoncelli at the 2011 French Grand Prix.

“I’ve undergone surgery to remove the plate and 13 screws from my right collarbone operation in 2011, which I required as a result of the crash I had that season,” Pedrosa explains on Friday.
