Cham­pion Bin­der breaks arm

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Moto3 world cham­pion Brad Bin­der has had a dif­fi­cult start to his cam­paign in the mid­dleweight class on KTM’S new Moto2 ma­chine, after a crash at Va­len­cia left him with a bro­ken arm.

Crash­ing at the end of the first day of a two-day planned test, Bin­der was un­lucky to get tan­gled with his ma­chine as he fell, both break­ing and dis­lo­cat­ing his arm.

Mo­togp’s res­i­dent or­thopaedic spe­cial­ist Dr Xavier Mir op­er­ated in Barcelona the fol­low­ing day, and he’s con­fi­dent that Bin­der will make a full re­cov­ery. He should be back to full fit­ness in five to six weeks and it should not af­fect his test sched­ule.

Not the best of Moto2 starts for Bin­der
