Marco Bezzecchi will try to be in Indonesia for the GP to be held in Mandalika next Sunday.
The operation on the right collarbone, carried out by specialist Giuseppe Porcellini, no stranger to such operations and well known among riders, went well and the consequence is that Bez has decided to leave for Lombok anyway to try to get 'fit to race'.
If positive, Marco will try to take to the track in Friday's free practice.
Strange case his teammate, Luca Marini, will also follow the same rigmarole due to a fractured collarbone caused by a fall in the Sprint in India for which he missed the Japanese GP.
Obviously Bezzecchi's presence, given his position in the world championship - he is the third wheel in the title fight between Bagnaia and Martin at -54 points from the leader - is crucial to keep the title fight open.
If not, for both of them, there will be no replacements, although at least one name has been mentioned, that of Danilo Handyman Petrucci.
The web of course even went wild on the Valentino Rossi hypothesis, but apart from the impracticality of the thing, Vale will be busy with cars in Zandvoort.
