Marc Marquez has revealed he is back on the recovery trail after undergoing surgery to relieve the ‘Compartment Syndrome’ he was suffering with during the second-half of the MotoGP season.
Just a day after he began the countdown to his new endeavour as a Ducati rider with a test on the Gresini Racing GP22/23 on Tuesday, Marquez went under the knife to correct the issue, better known as ‘arm pump’.
“In the second part of the season, I have been suffering from Compartment syndrome in my right arm,” he wrote on Twitter/X.
“We solved the problem this morning with Dr. Ignacio Roger de Oña and their team to be ready for 2024!”
While arm pump - and surgery to correct it - is fairly common among riders, particularly in MotoGP, it is just the latest in a string of medical procedures Marquez has undergone over the past four years.
Once the dominant force of MotoGP, Marquez - who won six titles in seven years up to the end of the 2019 season - has struggled to rediscover his best form since an accident at the Spanish MotoGP season opener in 2020 left him with lingering arm and shoulder injuries.
