When things don’t seem to be going your way then they really don’t and that’s been the case for Benoit Paturel.
The French rider who still hasn’t got a ride for the 2018 season got a bike from his old team, BUD Racing to contest the SX2 class at the Paris SX event taking place this weekend.
Unfortunately, Paturel has took a big crash which he’s described as “I fell very hard”.
On the bright side, it doesn’t seem like the injury is too serious as he’s avoided any fractures so hopefully he will be fine with a few weeks rest.
