MotoGP: Puig: “Marquez in Valencia? A check-up on Monday to see if he can.”


Another injury has complicated Marc Marquez’s season. He won’t be in Portimão due to a concussion he suffered while riding enduro. The Honda rider stopped as a precaution and, at this moment, they still don't known whether he'll be able to take part in the last race of the year, scheduled for next weekend in Valencia.

Honda’s team manager, Alberto Puig, was interviewed by Sky: “Marc hit his head while doing enduro in the mountains near Cervera. It was a small blow but, when he got home, his head kept spinning, as if he were in a daze.”

Doctors later found he had a concussion, but Puig denied that his already battered right shoulder was involved in the accident. “He had no problems with his arm or other parts of his body,” he stated.

Now we’ll just have to wait a few more days to know when Marc will be back on the track.

He was visited in Barcelona. He’ll undergo another check-up  on Monday to see if he can be in Valencia,” Puig explained.
