Video: Geerts huge crash in French GP!

MX2 world championship leader, Jago Geerts, had a huge get-off on the opening lap of the qualifying race in France on a steep, rutted and bumpy downhill while in third with the Belgian not able to get back in the race. Geerts was down for a while with medics surrounding him but he eventually was able to walk away.

UPDATE – It has been confirmed by Yamaha that Geerts is out for the weekend with a fractured wrist blowing the title chase wide open. Jago has a 41 point lead over Adamo going into tomorrow with qualifying race winner Kay de wolf five points further back. That’s big blow for the Belgian who was dominating the season up to this point.

The PR said: Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MX2’s Jago Geerts has been ruled out of the French Grand Prix in Villars Sous Ecot, round seven of the FIM Motocross World Championship, after fracturing his left wrist in a fall on the second lap of Qualifying today.

Geerts fell heavily on the steepest descent of the Villars Sous Ecot circuit after hitting a sharp kicker that consequently threw him over the handlebars. While the current MX2 Championship Leader returned to the paddock without assistance, he suffered severe pain in his left wrist and went straight to the onsite medical center for closer assessment, where it was confirmed that the bone was fractured.
Geerts will now return to Belgium to see an orthopedic specialist. An update on his treatment plan and a potential return to action will be posted on and Yamaha Racing’s social media platforms when available.
