Pedrosa's recovery on track for 2011
Dani Pedrosa, who finished second in the 2010 MotoGP World Championship despite missing three of the last five races due to a fractured collarbone, has been told he will be able to resume training in January.
Pedrosa, who required surgery after his collarbone broke in two places when the throttle on his Repsol Honda stuck open during practice at Motegi, struggled with numbness and a lack of strength after returning for the last two races.
That prompted fears that further surgery may be needed, but doctors decided that was not necessary and have now told the Spaniard he can start training in January.
Pedrosa will then have one month to raise his physical condition before the first MotoGP test of 2011 is held at Sepang in Malaysia from February 1-3.
