Two of Kawasaki’s top 250 riders have been injured while testing for Supercross. Frenchman Benoit Paturel, who was due to ride the Paris Supercross for the BUD team, fell while testing in France. His injuries are not thought to be serious but he’ll be out of the weekend’s Paris Supercross.
Across the Pond, Pro Circuit’s Austin Forkner has crashed, breaking his wrist and collarbone – pictured above. This means he’s likely to start his Supercross campaign in the East Coast series as it starts later than the West Coast championship.
