As confirmed by himself on his twitter Carlos Checa suffers a hip fracture and will have to be operated on tomorrow. This injury will prevent you finish this season the Superbike championship of which there are three appointments (Laguna Seca, Magny Cours and Jerez).
After the tests carried out after the fall in the free practice on Friday in Istanbul Park, he was only diagnosed with a torn scaphoid in his left hand. Recovery was expected to be fast, since there was no operation and the doctors recommended that she simply rest.
Once in Spain, more tests have been carried out in which they have seen a fracture in the hip and another in the radius end. It is not known how his recovery will be after the intervention but his farewell to the World Superbike for this season is clear.
This leaves the future of the Catalan rider, who will turn forty-one in October, more open than he was. Virtually no one sees him continue with the project Ducati due to the bad moment that the team is going through, with an uncompetitive motorcycle and all the rumors brought him closer to the team of Kawasaki as a partner of Tom sykes.
