Ducati rider Cal Crutchlow is doing everything in his power to heal his injured pinkie finger and return to the MotoGP track as soon as possible. The finger he injured required surgery and now he is has been in the chamber to fast track the healing process. The image below provided by the BT Sport MotoGP Twitter Page shows what Cal is going through to ensure his finger gets back to 100%. Cal must be ready to utilise his hand to the maximum when he is breaking and accelerating in and out of corners.

As a MotoGP rider it is important to heal an injured body in a quick time frame otherwise you could risk losing out to other riders and possibly a World Championship like Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa experienced last year. The hyperbaric chamber will speed up the recovery process and ensure he can ride again to represent the red and white of the Ducati MotoGP team.
