Mir considering arm pump surgery ahead of 2023 season

Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar) has confirmed he will consider undergoing arm pump (compartment syndrome) surgery after the 2022 MotoGP™ season is complete, having significantly struggled with the issue in Sunday’s race at the PETRONAS Grand Prix of Malaysia. Having come back from an ankle injury that saw him miss four races at the Australian GP, Mir has been hoping to end his season on a high before he joins Repsol Honda Team for the 2023 campaign. Despite this, Mir didn’t see a heavy dose of arm pump coming, something he explained on Sunday afternoon after the race. I couldn’t understand the [brake] pressure that I was doing and I lost all the strength in the right arm, and that’s a bit what happened,” said Mir to the media. And then during the race, I didn’t feel any drop on the rear tyre, that was OK. The Suzuki rider hasn’t raced in the last four races due to an ankle injury.
