Jago Geerts has offered an update on his injuries sustained in Argentina after two big crashes – but it was the second one that did the damage of a dislocated elbow and broken collarbone.

The MXGP rookie now faces a lengthy recovery time which is a shame as he was a real boost to the MXGP World Championship.

The Belgian will be eager to get back and impress when he does return though.

“On these recordings with my GOPRO you can see where it went wrong during the qualifying race for the MXGP in Argentina.

“Yesterday I had surgery on my left elbow and my right collarbone.

“I want to thank the surgeons, Dr Ludwig Anné and Dr Gert-Jan Opsomer (shoulder) and Dr. Duerinckx and Dr Pieter Caekebeke (elbow), the medical staff from the hospital Genk Oost-Limburg ZOL in Belgium and my team for the good care.”
