Moto2 title contender Alex Rins has broken his collarbone.
The Spaniard Apginas Amarillas HP 40 rider snapped his left collarbone reportedly during a normal training session yesterday. He fell off a small dirtbike whilst slide-training off-road.
Surgery for the break is due to happen today. Dr Xavier Mir will carry out the operation at the Clinica Dexeus in Spain.
“I was training with a 100cc bike and I fell off… at first it didn’t really hurt much, but when I cooled off the pain started to get worse and we decided to go to the hospital. They discovered a break in my collarbone and they advised me to have surgery to fix it – to be able to be fit for the British GP.”
Rins is expected to join his rivals back on track at Silverstone on the 2nd September.
