Winter means holidays for the riders who have time to rest before starting the new season with the possibility of recharging themselves. Someone took benefit of this period to increase their work to be fully prepared for the new season, someone go on holidays without losing the focus keeping training to be 100% ready for the incoming Championship.
Anyway, the most common thing for a lot of riders is to go under surgery to fix some pains suffered during the year or just to have their body at 100% to express maximum potential. It was the case of many riders during this Winter and now it was Iker Lecuona’s turn to go under surgery to fix his compartment syndrome.
It is a common problem for a lot of guys competing in motorsport, especially with bikes, and the Spaniard was not the first who has been operated to solve the issue as long as also other riders did the same during their careers. Lecuona wants to be fully ready for the next season, his first in MotoGP with KTM and does not want to miss the chance that has been given to him.
Everything went well and Iker has undergone a successful surgery to his right arm for chronic exertional compartment syndrome; not the best way to enjoy his birthday (January 6th) but now Lecuona will be ready for Sepang’s test and for the upcoming season where he will try to shine to keep a seat in the MotoGP alongside his teammate Miguel Oliveira.
