Clement Desalle picked up a knee injury at the last round of the 2016 World Championship round. The injury forced him out of the Motocross Des Nations which was a big blow for Belgium as they missed out on the overall podium without Desalle.
However, some good news is that Clement is officially back on the bike which is pleasing to see! It means he will have a full off-season to prepare for the 2017 season.
The speed at the front of the MXGP series in 2017 will be impressive with Herlings, Gajser, Febvre and Cairoli. It will be interesting to see if Desalle will be able to go with them and ruffle a few feathers!
