The 2013 WorldSBK World Champion has had surgery in Barcelona after a Saturday crash at Portimao

Tom Sykes (Kawasaki Racing Team) has undergone surgery on the fracture he sustained on his finger following his crash on Saturday in Portugal. The operation took place on Sunday (17th September) at the iMove Traumatology centre of the Mi Tres Torres Clinic in Barcelona and a rapid, favorable recovery is expected.

KRT rider Sykes suffered a tough crash in FP3 at Round 10 of the season at turn 9 of the Portimao track, resulting in a displaced fracture of the little finger of his left hand and fissures of the fourth finger of the same hand and the left wrist.

The operation at the Mi Tres Torres Clinic to repair his left hand and wrist lasted less than two hours and was performed by Doctor Jordi Font Segura and Doctor Enric Domínguez, of the Hand and Elbow Unit of iMove.
