Hofer injury update
KTM have released an update on MX2 rookie Rene Hofer who went down hard in the second moto today in Latvia and looked in a lot of pain.
Unfortunately for the talented youngster it has been confirmed he has fractured his shoulder, ruling him out of action for a few weeks.
Tom Vialle also gives his view on a solid if unspectacular pair of fourth places in Kegums.
KTM: Teammate Rene Hofer was part of a first corner melee in the opening race and unfortunately crashed and fractured his left shoulder while running inside the top ten later in the afternoon. The Austrian travelled to the local hospital for a full examination but plans to leave Latvia for surgery to repair the joint.
Tom Vialle: “I made the starts today but struggled a bit with my rhythm. I was able to fight with Mathys [Boisrame] and Roan [Van de Moosdijk] for a little bit although I lost the tow after. We will work a little bit on my suspension setting for next Sunday. We still lead the championship and it is not too bad to take a 4-4 on a track where I wasn’t feeling so good today. Sunday will be a new day and I hope we will be able to fight for the win again.”
