VALENCIA, Spain — Multi-time MotoGP champion Marc Marquez will miss his second straight event this weekend.
The Repsol Honda Team rider will not participate in the Valencia Grand Prix this coming weekend or ithe IRTA Jerez Test scheduled for Nov. 18-19.
Marquez missed last weekend’s event in Portugal after he was injured in a training accident near his home in Cervera, Spain.
During these days of rest, Marquez continued to feel unwell and has suffered from vision problems.
As a result, Marquez was visited by the ophthalmologist Dr. Sánchez Dalmau at the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona. The doctor examined him and performed tests, which detected a new episode of diplopia.
“The examination carried out on Marc Marquez today after the accident that occurred has confirmed that the rider has diplopia and has revealed a paralysis of the fourth right nerve with involvement of the right superior oblique muscle,” said Dr. Dalmau. “A conservative treatment with periodic updates has been chosen to follow with the clinical evolution. This fourth right nerve is the one that was already injured in 2011.”
