Injury update: Bad news for Cyril Genot!
It was shaping up to be an exciting season for talented Belgian, Cyril Genot but things didn’t go to plan because in January he picked up a collarbone injury. Genot then made his return to racing in May.
Genot who was also a privateer then picked up a ride with the French team of VHR KTM for the rest of the season.
However, during a practice crash last week Genot tore his ACL, it means he’s likely to be out for the rest of the season now which is a shame.
Genot posted the following message on social media:
So I really haven’t been looking forward to sharing this news with you guys but I want to keep you all updated. Last week I made a mistake during training where I dislocated my little toe. We immediately put it back in place. Unfortunately the next day my knee started to hurt a little bit as well. It didn’t seem as bad as the results showed a few days later. I completely tore my ACL. I will undergo surgery a few weeks from now. I’m trying to keep my head up and stay positive. It’s really hard but I’ve got the best people around me.
