Britain’s Cal Crutchlow has gone under the knofe to remove a plate from his shoulder and to clean up problematic arthritis caused by a crash back in 2010.
The CWM LCR Honda man was operated on by Len Funk, who is a Consultant Shoulder Surgeon and Professor of Orthopaedics & Sports Science, and Crutchlow will now fly to America for the winter.
“I had arthritis in my left shoulder after a crash I had in 2010 and I also had a plate in there from my crash at Silverstone in 2011. I needed to get the arthritis cleaned out because in warmer conditions I didn’t have an issue, but in the cold, it was a bit painful. And the plate has been finally removed,” said Crutchlow.
“Now I feel much better and want to thank Professor Len for his excellent job. Soon I will fly to America to start my winter training programme and I am really looking forward to the next outing aboard the RCV.”
