Max Anstie to miss Thailand GP
Bad news for Max Anstie as he is set to miss the MXGP of Thailand!
Steve Dixon, Team manager: “Unfortunately on Saturday through no fault of his own another rider stalled in front of Max, causing him to cut his foot open on someone the riders footpeg. Max required stitches and painkillers to ride, causing a lack of feeling in his foot.
In the second race Max crashed on the double jump, luckily only leaving with internal bruising and ligament tearing. Max and the Team have made the decision that riding this week could result in a much longer time out, but with some care and physio Max will hopefully be strong and back for the first round of the Maxxis British Championship or Argentina.
We are really happy with Max’s speed and this is a real shame but it’s a long season.”
Max broke the news on his instagram this morning saying:
“Bad news. Not going to Thailand. Will be back for Argentina. Things are worse than originally thought from the crash”
