Team HRC’s Tim Gajser was injured today following a crash during the MX1 race of the ‘Internazionali d’Italia’ final round in Mantova.
After a first assessment of his condition locally, the 21-year-old Slovenian rider was transported to the nearby Carlo Poma hospital to perform a series of evaluations and scans, which gave a clearer picture of his condition. Gajser was conscious, he interacted with the medical staff and showed full body movement; results from MRI scans to head and cervical spine were clear.
Gajser is currently undergoing a surgical operation to repair two fractures in his jaw bone.
More updates will follow through Team HRC and Honda’s official channels as soon as more information becomes available.
It was the former world champ’s first race of the season and comes just three weeks before the GP opener in Patagonia. He crashed hard over a jump.
