Crutchlow has operation on arm
Saturday 09 April 2011
Cal Crutchlow is looking forward to riding his Monster Yamaha Tech 3 bike without any discomfort after undergoing surgery to help cure his arm pump problem.
Crutchlow, from Coventry, has had an operation to help solve the trapped nerves problem which causes his right arm to swell as he grips the handlebars too tightly on his Yamaha YZR-M1.
The 2009 World Supersport champion had the operation after muscles in his right arm trapped nerves and caused numbness as he over-compensated for the left shoulder which was weakened following a previous operation.
He will have the stitches removed in 12 days and plans to race in Portugal on 1 May. He said: "At the moment I can't feel two of my fingers, but the doctor said that is completely normal and the feeling will come back."
