Two weeks before the Sepang Shakedown test, 2022 MotoGP rookie Remy Gardner has wrist surgery.
Remy Gardner, a MotoGP rookie, had surgery on his right wrist barely two weeks before the start of pre-season testing in Sepang for the 2022 season.
Doctor Mir placed two screws in his wrist, and the Moto2 world champion ‘will begin his recuperation process on Friday,’ according to the Tech3 KTM team with which he will race this season.
Gardner, along with test riders and concession maker Aprilia, is eligible to compete in the Sepang Shakedown from January 31 to February 2.
The official test, which is open to everyone on the 2022 grid, takes occur on February 5-6, followed by a final test on February 11-13 at the new Mandalika track in Indonesia.
While the majority of this year’s five MotoGP rookies made their premier-class debuts at the Jerez test in November, Gardner and teammate Raul Fernandez had their first taste of the RC16 in September at Misano.
Gardner, who has previously suffered rib ailments, finished 22nd out of 26 riders, just 0.2s behind quickest rookie Fabio di Giannantonio (Gresini Ducati).
