Whilst preparing for the MX2 World Championship which is heading to Germany (Teutschenthal) this weekend, Hakon Osterhagen has unfortunately picked up an injury. The Norwegian has picked up a neck injury and will be out for ‘several’ weeks.

It hasn’t been the best of season’s for the JM Honda team with Brent van Doninck getting injured in Argentina and then his fill in replacement, Tim Edberg also picking up a recent injury.

It’ll be interesting to see if the team decide to snap up a fill in rider for the MX2 World Championship.

We caught up with Jacky Martens to discuss Osterhagen at Arco di Trento and he told us the following:

“Yeah with Hakon, we think he needs some time. He has had some big injuries, the milt, the femur… You know everything is coming in one time and to find your confidence I think it takes some time, but I hope it comes soon because this is not a position where we want to be”.
