After his nasty crash at the MXGP of Russia, Clement Desalle could sit out the rest of the season after surgery on his leg earlier this week.
After returning to Belgium on Monday, Doctor Claes performed the procedure on Desalle’s broken left tibia, fibula, he also suffered a sprained ankle, whatever happens Clement is likely to be out for some time.
François Lemariey (team manager): “We were disappointed last weekend when Clément crashed, but hopefully the surgery went Ok and Clément has now start a long recovery program. We can’t say how long he will be out, but the entire team is of course behind him and wish him a good recovery. Now we stay focus alongside Julien, who show in the past GPs’ big improvements and is coming closer to podium results; we are sure that if he can qualify better that will help him on Sunday, and we’re happy to see that the testing sessions we did with him in the past weeks help him to get better results.”
