WSBK: Jonathan Rea undergoes successful surgery

Jonathan Rea who underwent surgery on his injured left wrist Tuesday afternoon in the UK.
The Honda Ten Kate rider who crashed during qualifying session at Imola, missed the Italian round and was able to take part only in race 1 at Magny-Cours finishing in 12th and skipping race 2 due to pain.

Specialist surgeon Mike Hayton repaired the ruptured ligament between the left scaphoid and lunar bones where the injury also detached part of both bones.
Rea will return to his home on the Isle of Man today to begin his recuperation before returning to Manchester in a month’s time to have two supporting wires removed from the wrist.

“There was more damage than they first thought and the operation took about two hours instead of one.
Basically, the ligament between the two bones was 100% ruptured and the two wires are designed to pull them together while the ligament meshes again.
It certainly wasn’t how I wanted to finish my season, but I’m grateful to Mike Hayton for fitting in my operation before he went to host a seminar in the USA yesterday evening.

I’ll get back into training as soon as I get home and focus on getting fit for testing for the 2011 World Superbike season.
”Ten Kate has yet to announce who they’ll be fielding as their second rider with several websites betting on the luckless former MotoGP and Moto2 rider Alex de Angelis to replace Max Neukirchner.
