Team Suzuki Alstare Brux rider Max Neukirchner is on the mend after his horrific crash on the opening lap of the first race at Monza. On Sunday evening he underwent a six hour operation to repair the damaged bones in his right leg and although he lost quite a bit of blood, a transfusion was not deemed necessary.
According to the doctors, the operation passed without any complications and there are no reasons why Max will not make a full and successful recovery.
When Max came out of the operation, at about two o'clock in the morning, he asked for some water, a pizza and what took them so long! He will remain in the hospital in Monza for the next few days, before flying home as soon as the doctors give him the OK to do so.
Max Neukirchner Speaks...
"I remember everything and I can tell you that the pain was unbearable. As soon as the doctors give me the green light, I want to go home immediately."
Alstare will keep you up to date on Max's progress and would like to thank you for all the wishes for his speedy recovery.
