Double MotoGP title winner Jorge Lorenzo has undergone surgery on his left collarbone and right thumb, in order to be 100% fit for the start of the 2014 World Championship.
Jorge Lorenzo attended a promotional event organized by one of his sponsors in Barcelona on Tuesday and participated in a special press conference in which he faced questions from a very young audience.
Following the conclusion of the 2013 MotoGP World Championship and before starting his winter holidays, this year’s premier class runner-up has been busy with various sponsor commitments.
Lorenzo’s latest round of off-track work will take him to Indonesia before the weekend as he flies to Asia to help promote the Yamaha brand.
Marc Marquez had to resist his natural instinct as fabulously fast risk-taker to secure his historic MotoGP World Championship in Valencia.
Marquez says that temptation almost got the better of him as he momentarily thought to engage title rival Jorge Lorenzo in a battle for victory in the championship deciding race.
But at a crucial point of the 30-lap race, Marquez elected to settle for third place and secure his place in the record books.
