Absolutely guttered 😔😔 had a practice crash yesterday braking my collarbone pretty good. Unfortunately this will put me out of the MXON this year which hurts just that much more. Good luck to the boys you will smash it 💪🏼💪🏼 #broken #out #goodluckNZ #mxon #rollercoasteryear #sorrybois
Consequently CML KTM’s Hamish Harwood has been drafted as a replacement, Harwood has won motos this year in the Aussie MX2 Nationals and is currently fourth overall but he also raced the MX1 class on the same day and holds 15th in the standings!
Harwood will join Cody Cooper and Josiah Natzke on the team.
