ROMAIN FEBVRE BREAKS RIB AT MXGP IN TURKEY SIDELINING HIM FOR NEXT ROUND
Press Release: Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP’s Romain Febvre, who crashed out of the Turkish Grand Prix 10 days ago, will not participate in the MXGP of The Netherlands that will take place at the Dutch TT Circuit in Assen this weekend.
After setting the fastest lap time in the first practice session at the MXGP of Turkey, Febvre suffered from a heavy fall in the second session that resulted in a broken rib.
Febvre returned to his home, in Belgium, after the Grand Prix and used the weekend off to rest and recover from the impact. He tried to ride for the first time since the accident earlier this week where he confirmed that the rib is not yet healed. Due to the immense pain he was experiencing, the 26-year-old Frenchman has decided to withdraw from the Dutch Grand Prix this weekend.
Despite missing the most recent Grand Prix, Febvre remains fifth in the MXGP Championship Standings. An update on his condition and his return will be shared on www.yamaha-racing.com and all of Yamaha Racing’s Official Social Media platforms, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, when available.
