Tim Gajser has given an update on his status after his big crash at the MXGP of Assen, and thankfully revealed that he has no broken bones and will race the final GP of the year in France this weekend.
The 2019 MXGP world champ said on Instagram: “After Weekend like that when you wake up and you are grateful that you are in one piece! Thanks God🙏🏻 Yesterday I had a big one but thankfuly nothing is broken just i feel sore. Soo i will be ready for Franch GP ✊🏻Huge thanks to every one around me and all supporters. Thank you guys👍🏻 Congrats @antoniocairoli on your 9th world title 👏 big respect.”
Gajser went over the bars big time while running a very good third in the first moto as you can see here:
Team boss Roger Harvey told the Honda media team: “To sum up the day here at Assen, it is safe to say it has been a total disaster. It started off well as Tim was fastest this morning in warm up, and had a good start in race one. This enabled him to run at the front for a while until he was hunted down dropping to third. He was riding well, and was very comfortable and relaxed. This all changed when he sat a little too far forward over a wave section, clipping the back wheel and dropping the front wheel into wet heavy sand causing the bike to flip straight onto him. Although we hope there are no injuries, he has suffered trauma to the abdomen, so after investigation from both the medical team and by our own physio, it was decided that unfortunately he would not race the second race.”
“Bobby had a good start off the gate in race one but a crash early on dropped him back. This was the story of the second race for Bobby too. In the second corner off the start, he went down with Glenn Coldenhoff and although he got going, he went down again a few more times in the deep ruts in his efforts to come back through the pack. It was just a series of crashes for Bobby which is how he ended up with his overall result of 14th position.”
Meanwhile Bobryshev commented: “I wasn’t consistent today, I had a good start in the first race and I fell in the second lap so I went from being in fifth place to out of the top 10. During the rest of the race I managed to fight back to seventh place. I had good speed I was just making too many mistakes.”
“The track was so difficult and then in the second race I ended up going upside down as Glenn Coldenhoff touch my bars which took both of us out and the next thing you knew I was laying in the sand. There was a big gap as the pack had pulled away, I was dead last and ended up coming back to 14th. It has been a disaster here for me today.”
