Hey guys, not a very good update to be giving you guys – the doctors say I can’t fly for 4 weeks because my lung could collapse fully. So that’s my MXGP season over 😢 As far as the Nations, I’m not out just yet! I have to see how my healing goes in the next 2/3 weeks and the docs are keeping a close eye on me and will make a decision after my next few scans. Swipe to see my crash from moto 2 with only 5 mins to go in Lommel. I just thought I got winded really bad but this was when I damaged my lung. I honestly thought my injuries there were no where near as bad as they have ended up being. That’s why I didn’t get properly checked, I genuinely thought I was just a bit stiff. Here is the press release from my team @standingktm. ————————- Unfortunately after further medical examination we have to announce that Max Anstie, winner of the second heat at the MXGP of Lommel, has to sit out the coming three MXGPs. The doctors discovered that as well as dislocating his clavicle (collarbone) in heat one at Lommel, Max also had a small legion on his lung from his crash in the second heat at the Belgian MXGP. Despite this serious injury Max still managed to win in Lommel, as well as get third in time practice and battle for a top five in the qualifying heat at Imola last weekend. Pushing his body on Saturday at the MXGP of Imola caused a pneumothorax (a partially collapsed lung). We once again experienced what a dedicated and professional rider Max is and we hope to get him ready for the Motocross of Nations in Assen, where he is for sure one of the favourites and could be able to repeat that dominant Motocross of Nations win from 2017.
