There are rumours circulating today of Tim Gajser suffering a broken collarbone injury.
Reportedly, Gajser cracked his left collarbone while in Croatia and underwent a quick surgery. Team HRC has not yet commented on the reports, but there seems to be too much smoke for this one not to have some truth to it.
If correct, Gajser will be riding with some considerable discomfort at Riola Sardo for the MXGP of Sardegna this weekend but could tough it out to minimise any potential points loss and then use the off week during the Motocross of Nations to heal up some more.
There was no mention of the injury in a press release sent out by the team yesterday. “I really enjoyed the double-header in Turkey,” he said in the press release. “I had a couple of really good races and was able to show my speed, win two motos and extend my championship lead.
“Since then, I went to Croatia to train a bit in the sand for Riola because I know this will be a difficult race there as the track can get very rough. I have done well in some pre-season events before, but the MXGPs are a very high standard right now so it won’t be easy but I want to just go out and try to enjoy my riding.”
