Eugene fractures both wrists at Imola
During Free Practice 1 at Imola – just as the WorldSBK Italian round was getting underway, few minutes after the start of the session, Eugene Laverty fell at the exit of the “Acque Minerali” turn.
A frightening highside threw him into the air, and he fell violently to the ground.
The impact caused the fracture of both wrists: in the right one the x-rays showed a broken Radius and Scaphoid, and the Stiloid of the Ulna; in the left one the Radius distal to the previous surgery and the base of the first metacarpal.
Eugene is already on his way to Barcelona, where tomorrow morning he will be operated on by the highly respected MotoGP and motorsport physician, Dr. Mir.
