BMW Motorrad Goldbet Superbike rider Marco Melandri underwent successful surgery on his right shoulder today (28th February) and is confident it won’t cause him any more problems.
Despite finishing the second race at Philip Island on the podium the Italian rider was hindered by a recurring shoulder pain, the cause of which is unknown although it was aggravated whilst riding at Phillip Island and he caught the injured shoulder during the clash with Carlos Checa, in which the Spaniard hit the Italian’s back wheel
After receiving medial treatment last year the pain persisted and the former Grand Prix winner decided to go under the knife after the opening round of the 2013 WSBK season to try and solve the problem as there is a 7 week gap until the next round at Aragon.
