Bobby Bruce suffered an injury to his left knee while training in Spain and will miss the start of the season. The injury, caused without crashing, was viewed by specialists in the UK, Spain and Belgium. The ASA GasGas team then consulted with Bobby, deciding that the best option was to have the injury dealt with as soon as the swelling allowed. Bobby has started intense rehab and will be back as soon as he is 100% fit.
Team Principal, Lee Tolan said: It’s a big blow for the team but unfortunately, it’s the nature of the beast. Bobby has been with me for three years now and I know him well, he’s a tough kid. I believe he will do everything necessary to be back on the bike as quickly as possible, of course the team and I are doing everything possible to facilitate his safe return to the paddock. Bobby has a bright future ahead of him and we don’t want to rush anything that could inhibit his progression at this early stage.”
