The Spaniard sustained a first surgery after the first race of the season where he crashed fracturing his right humerus, but still tried to came back on track the following week for Andalucia GP, but the pain was too much and was forced to miss it.
Honda HRC Repsol rider came back home so and started immediately training to be ready for Brno as proved by his posts on social media, but probably he stressed his right arm too much.

On Monday, Dottor Xavier Mir and his team successfully replace the titanium plate and Marc Marquez is forced to stay in hospital for 48 hours before being discharged. A terrible news for his healthy firstly, but also for the championship as he is unlikely to see him racing at Brno.
These are the words of Dr Mir: “Marc Marquez underwent surgery 13 days ago and today he returned to the operating room. The first operation was successful, what was not expected was that the plate was insufficient. An accumulation of stress in the operated area has caused the plate to suffer some damage, so today the titanium plate has been removed and replaced by a new fixation. The rider has not felt pain during this period. He has always followed the medical advice given and the feeling from his body. Unfortunately, an over stress has caused this issue. Now we have to wait 48 hours to understand the recovery time.”
