Marc Marquez discharged from hospital, Valencia in doubt?

Marc Marquez was not able to compete in last Sunday’s Moto2 race at Sepang after being judged unfit following his highside during the first free practice, which was caused by a wet patch at turn 10 that the marshals failed to flag.

The Spanish rider, who confirmed that he’ll be staying in Moto2, underwent a two day check-up and medical treatment at the USP Institut Universitari Dexeus in Barcelona upon returning home and was discharged today.

However, there has been no decision made whether Marquez will be able to ride against title rival Stefan Bradl in the final round of the season at Valencia, where the Moto2 championship crown will assigned.

Xavier Mir, Head of Hand Surgery Unit of the USP Dexeus reported on the physical condition of Catalunya Caixa Repsol rider: “Marc Márquez has a left shoulder traumatism, and incisive wound on the chin and second degree burns on the right knee, so we started with the cures to start regenerating the skin,” while Dr.
Ángel Charte, Head of the Department of Medicine said, “the rider arrived to the hospital after suffering an accident that caused concussion with brachial involvement and several contusions.

In Malaysia he also suffered an episode of blurred vision and image distortion.
When he arrived to the USP Institut Universitari Dexeus, we did several diagnosis tests that showed that he suffers periorbital edema that produces a sequential vertical diplopia (double vision), and discards any other type of injury.
He is following a treatment to correct this vision alteration and it is evolving satisfactorily”.
