Bad news for Maxime Renaux. The Frenchman crashed during time practice of the season opener in Riola Sardo this morning and dislocated his shoulder. With Thibault Benistant also out of action (broken collarbone), Jago Geerts will be the sole Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MX2 rider at the starting gate in Riola Sardo, this afternoon. Geerts was second fastest in time practice, only Renaux was faster.
Renaux: “I immediately set the fastest time and went for another fast lap. But I made a small mistake on the table top and landed a bit to far. I was thrown over the handlebars and dislocated my left shoulder when hitting the ground. I will visit my doctor tomorrow morning. I don’t think I will need surgery, because I don’t have that much pain and the physio was able to put my shoulder back in place again pretty quickly.”
