Knee surgery for Brylyakov

Kemea Yamaha’s Vsevolod Brylyakov withdrew from the final race at his home Grand Prix, the MXGP of Russia on Tuesday May 1st, after catching his left leg on a rut and twisting his knee. The incident has subsequently resulted in a broken Talus and a torn ACL ligament that will require surgical repair.

The 22-year-old – whose best race result this season was a third at the MXGP of Trentino, Italy – will remain in Moscow, Russia, where he will rehabilitate under the watchful eye of his trusted surgeon, Dr. Sergey Demin at the Moscow Military Hospital.

He said: “I can’t explain the feeling I have right now. The weekend in Russia was amazing, my speed was there and everything was going perfect. I was fourth in the qualifying race, I was feeling faster and more confident with every ride on the bike. To have your season ruined by something as stupid as putting your leg down in a wave section and twisting your knee, I can’t believe my luck. It is such a bummer. I just need to look at the positives now, and that is that I know I am a fast healer and that it is nothing that I haven’t been through before. I don’t want to think about the time it will take to heal, I just want to focus on healing up as well and as fast as I can, and we will see when I can be back.”
