Italian, Simone Furlotti will step up to racing the MX2 World Championship in 2018 for the Yamaha SM Action team. However, his preparations haven’t exactly gone to plan as he’s picked up a wrist injury.
Furlotti had to undergo an operation and is now in recovery. On the 18th of January he can start the physiotherapy he needs to get back on track.
He is expected to be back on the back mid February which means he faces a fight against time to be fit for the first round of the MX2 World Championship in Argentina.
However, he can still make it if everything goes to plan, the Italian will certainly do his best to be at the first round of the series.
