Dani Pedrosa has emerged from successful surgery in order to address an issue with arm pump. The operation, on the right forearm of the Team rider, was carried out in Barcelona on Tuesday afternoon.

The procedure was performed at the Quiron Dexeus University Hospital by Dr. Xavier Mir, with Pedrosa having begun to feel the affects of arm pump several days ago. The rider will now rest in order to be fully fit for the next Grand Prix, with the fifth round of the season taking place at Le Mans in France on Sunday 18 May.

Pedrosa has finished on the podium in the last eight races, dating back to his victory in Malaysia last October. Fresh from finishing second in Jerez last weekend, he lies second in the Riders’ Championship and 28 points behind team-mate Marc Marquez.
