“Pecco Bagnaia suffered multiple bruises, but follow-ups did not reveal any fracture. The world champion will fly to Italy with the team tonight.” Ducati announced the condition of its rider, who was hit by Binder’s KTM in the race today in Barcelona.
The impact had been violent, with Brad’s bike hitting Pecco’s legs. The first tests at the circuit had not revealed any fractures, but only with a CT scan at the hospital in Barcelona could serious injuries be excluded.
“Pecco is complaining of severe pain in his tailbone, due to the highside. But, above all, he’s angry because he can’t explain the fall. He says he didn’t make any mistakes,” Paolo Ciabatti informed us, breathing a sigh of relief for the conditions of his rider.
Bagnaia will be able to sleep in his own home this evening and then try to prepare as best as possible for his home GP at Misano, scheduled for next weekend.
