Following a crash in moto 2 at the Argentinian Grand Prix, factory Yamaha rider Romain Febvre will undergo surgery to repair a severely broken ankle. The former 450 World Champion finished third in moto 1 and was running in third in moto 2 when he unfortunately caught an edge in the wave section and was thrown from his YZ450F. He landed heavily on his right ankle. He was cleared of any injury in Argentina, but decided to get a second opinion upon arrival back in Belgium. Orthopaedic specialist Dr. Geert Peersman confirmed that Romain broke his Talus (ankle) in two places. The surgery is scheduled for Tuesday, March 12.
