Pedrosa Uncertain on Catalunya Return

Monday, May 16, 2011
Pedrosa couldnt close the gap entirely on his teammate in qualifying  though the Stoner Pedrosa duo are far ahead of the remaining GP pack - Qatar 2011
Following a crash at Le Mans, Honda Repsol team rider Dani Pedrosa could undergo surgery that could leave him out for Catalunya and take him out of the championship race.
Immediately following yesterday's race, Dani Pedrosa returned to Barcelona with the X-ray scans from the Le Mans circuit medical center. He visited his doctors at Teknon Medical Centre and further medical tests confirmed a clean break of the right collarbone.

The Repsol rider spent the night in the hospital, immobilized with a compressive dressing, and will decide in the next few days if he will undergo surgery to repair the fracture with a new plate or let the bone heal itself without intervention. In either case, his presence in the Grand Prix of Catalunya, to be held on June 5th, is uncertain.
