Petrov’s season is over!
Petar Petrov, who had dislocated a shoulder two weeks previously in Russia, bravely tried to ride, but the shoulder popped out again without him even crashing and the Bulgarian will now undergo surgery and miss the remainder of the series.
Petar Petrov: “The whole season has been hard for me, but what can we do when you’re so unlucky? I give my best every time I came, even if I was in pain but sometimes it’s not possible and you have to accept the situation. I rode the bike during the week and felt good, but with the heat here the muscles relax quite a lot and in the first practice session the shoulder I dislocated in Russia came out again. Now I will have surgery; for sure the season is over and the goal will be to get healthy again and ready for 2018.”
