During the last round of the MXGP World Championship series, Clement Desalle has picked up a knee injury and had to miss the races on Sunday.
Clement will have an MRI scan when he gets back to Europe to find out the full extent of his injury. With the nations just two weekends away Belgium will be sweating on his fitness. They will need a fit Clement Desalle to have any chance of winning the event.
If Desalle is ruled out who will Joel Smets call upon? Brent Van Doninck would probably be the best bet with Van Horebeek racing the open class. Brent has never rode the event but it would be good experience for him. However, Belgium will be much less of a threat with the young MX2 rider.
More on Desalle’s injury situation as we get it.
