Lecuona, the starting rider for Team HRC Superbike, a championship in which he is 13th with 87 points and has fourth in the Superpole Race de Catalunya as his best result, took advantage of the gaps in his calendar to make replacement for three of the four Honda riders. At the Spanish GP in Jerez, he covered the loss of Marc Márquez at Repsol Honda, at the Dutch GP he again dressed in the Repsol Honda suit to change Joan Mir and at the British GP at Silverstone it changed livery and used LCR Honda Castrol instead alex rinses which two weeks later he will replace again this weekend in Austria. And except for the race of Assen He was completely abiding by what was required of him: don’t mess it up too much and put the whole bike back in the box at the races. 16th at Jerez less than four tenths from the last point at stake was his best result.

Rins’ priority is to recover properly

In a recent interview on the Motorsport Rins MotoGP podcast, he updated the injury: “My leg feels good, I still have a little pain in my foot, the whole plant’s nervous system is a little weak. But I’m doing steps forward, I’m going to the pool and I’ve taken a few steps without crutches, progressing. I plan to go to Austria on Thursday to be with the team and see people in the paddock. From there, to continue with the recovery”, explained the man from Barcelona from his home in Andorra.

“Recovering well from the injury is the most important thing, regardless of whether we change teams next year or if we continue with the same team. It’s not just any injury, it might be the hardest I’ve ever had. at the sports level and I need to recover and recover a lot, because you can have mobility consequences for the rest of your life. So it has nothing to do with changing equipment, it’s important to recover properly on my own. A fall when everything is still welded and that moves a screw or a plate, because I have a whole leg, it can take a lot of toll”, the matter was settled.
