Geerts on just missing a podium after breaking his collarbone three weeks ago!

Jago Geerts made a comeback in style in the Grand Prix of The Netherlands. The Belgian settled – barely 21 days after his bad collarbone fracture – in fourth position. His teammate, Rick Elzinga (13th) had to deal with a lot of bad luck.

“A fourth place and a fight till the end for the podium: that is more than I could have dreamed of after my bad collarbone fracture. I had much less problems with my shoulder than expected. So, I can only be happy with the result. Especially my second moto was very good. I battled an exciting duel with Everts, managed to pass him in the last lap but then I was held up by a lapped rider and Everts passed me again. I just miss the GP-podium, which is a bit disappointing. Now I have two weeks to prepare the next GP. The plan is to fight for the win again in Turkey.”
#44 Rick Elzinga13th overall, 10th in championship 
“I really was not lucky this weekend. And that in front of my own crowd. Frustrating. In the first moto I was on my way to a certain fourth position, until a lapped rider hit me. From four to nine. A serious bummer. And it got worse. The start of the second moto was really chaotic and I crashed. I fell straight on my left shoulder. I managed to come back to P10, but my shoulder kept popping out. It got really dangerous and I was forced to abandon. Monday, I will have a scan to see how big the damage is. Although I expect It will not be too bad.”
