Most people will know by now but my weekend in lommel didn't go to plan and ended with a broken collarbone… felt good on the track all weekend and was pumped to lay some good results on the table. Crashed in the start in the first Moto and landed hard on my shoulder and felt a crack allready, still fought back from last to 18 but lost two spots in the last lap due to too much pain and after the Moto went to medical and the told me I that I rode the entire Moto with a broken collarbone. Going to the doctors this week to make a decision about this season and will keep everyone updated. All pics by the @niekkamper
