Young Austrian talent, Michael Sandner suffered from a crash at the latest round of the ADAC Youngsters Cup which took place at Gaildorf.
As a result of the crash, Sandner has broken his ankle which means he needs to undergo surgery. Sandner will miss the rest of the season and work on coming back stronger for the 2019 season.
Unfortunately, Sandner who was pencilled in to represent Austria at the Motocross Des Nations will now have to give the event a miss which is a huge blow.
Sandner posted the following update on social media:
“The 2018 season is over for me. With a broken ankle and my surgery on Sunday, it’s my race season ending early. I can’t ride the MXoN this year for team Austria in the US.
Nevertheless, the season 2018 was very successful, I was able to show good results!
