A training fall puts Toni Bou in surgery for an operation on his fibula.
Repsol Honda Team rider Toni Bou underwent surgery on Wednesday afternoon at Barcelona’s Mi Tres Torres Clinic after suffering a fall during training. The twenty-eight-time Trial World Champion fell whilst training. He required an urgent operation in order to guarantee a short period of convalescence.
The operation, undergone at the Mi Tres Torres Clinic, consisted of osteosynthesis with a fibula plate in the left leg, performed by Dr. Josep Torrent and Dr. Maurise Saur from iMove Traumatology. This was under the supervision of team doctor Joaquim Terricabras. After one hour of surgery, Dr. Terricabras stated that the operation was successful and that the rider was now in the post-operative phase.
The estimated period of convalescence ordered by the doctor should be around ten days. Toni Bou may be fit to be back on the bike within three weeks to re-commence preparations for the Trial World Championship season opener.
The TrialGP World Championship campaign gets underway on June 12 and 13 in Tolmezzo, Italy. It is likely that Toni Bou will be able to participate in this opening round at full fitness.
