The man from Mazarrón will undergo an emergency operation this Wednesday in Barcelona and will miss the Dutch GP this weekend
Bad news. Pedro Acosta from Mazarrón will not be able to compete this weekend at the Dutch Grand Prix, the 11th round of this season, after breaking his femur this Tuesday morning while doing motocross in Murcia. Thus, the driver from Puerto de Mazarrón will miss the race that will mark the beginning of the summer holidays for the entire World Championship grid. The good thing is that he will then have five weeks to recover well before returning to action at Silverstone on the first weekend of August.
As reported by Red Bull KTM Ajo in a statement, the current Moto3 world champion suffered an accident this Tuesday morning while doing motocross, with the misfortune of having broken the femur of his left leg. Thus, Acosta was quickly transferred to Barcelona, to the Dexeus Clinic, so that Dr. Mir and his team could analyze the state of his leg and decide which way to go in the next few hours.
The first information indicates that it is a clean fracture, which is always positive within the severity of the injury. His team confirmed late on Tuesday that tomorrow, Wednesday, he will go through the operating room.
This misfortune comes at the worst moment, when he was climbing the Moto2 general classification, after a first place, a sixth and a second. Acosta had placed himself 58 points behind the leader of the World Cup, Celestino Vietti, when there is still half a World Cup to play. This accident and his passing through the operating room slowed him down when he began to enjoy himself in the intermediate category of the Motorcycle World Championship.
