MotoGP, Two injured vertebre for Alex Rins

Following his crash during the Valencia tests, exams found a compression of the T8 and T12


Alex Rins has injured two vertebre after an unlucky crash this morning on turn 12 during the Valencia tests. The Suzuki rider was taking to the Valencia hospital and the doctors conducted further tests, finding a compression of the T8 and T12 vertebre in the upper part of the back.

Fortunately, Rins did not do any spinal damage. He was conscious the entire time and has no further problems other than severe pain. He will most likely be able to return to Barcelona as early as tomorrow, after which he will need to rest for about one month.

A more detailed clinical diagnosis will be released some time this evening.
