Of course, the recovery will take about three months, so Ana will not be able to participate in any race other than the remainder of the Supersport 300 World Championship (she was fifth with 97 points) .

"It is considered appropriate to perform surgery to stabilize the fractures and allow early mobilization. The surgery will be performed under control of the function of the spinal cord at all times. We estimate that if everything evolves as planned, in 48 hours you could begin to sit up and to walk and the idea would be to authorize her to start isometric exercises after three weeks. It is estimated that in a period of 3 months she will be able to progressively incorporate into her professional activity. Once the fractures have healed, the removal of the material of implanted titanium ", says doctor Ubierna.
