Salut à tous , comme vous avez pu le voir je n'ai pas pu finir mes manches du championnat Italien. J'ai eu des douleurs aux avant bras qui devenait insupportables.. Dès lundi j'ai rencontré mon chirurgien qui m'a diagnostiqué un syndrome des loges, je me suis fait opéré dans la foulée!! Je ne serais malheureusement pas présent en Argentine mais je vais continuer de travailler pour revenir au top de ma forme 👍 Hey everybody , like you saw in Italian championship, I was not able to finish the races because I had really big arm pump. So directly on Monday I saw my doctor and he told me , you need operation . I will not be on the gate in Argentina but I will come back stronger , thanks to to my team @gebbenvanvenrooykawasaki To support me 100% . #nevergiveup #stillbelieve #mercidocteurbour #merci @rocketpichon101
