Spaniard Ruben Fernandez is yet to race a lap in 2024 and will be sidelined indefinitely with a knee injury.

Ruben Fernandez will not be on the gate for the Spanish GP at the Arroyomolinos circuit near Madrid as he has not recovered from the leg injury sustained at the first round of the series.

Fernandez will not be lining up next to him because of the torn ACL injury that he suffered in the first turn incident of the Argentina qualification race. It is a massive shame for him, because not only is this his home GP, it is also a race that he stepped up onto the podium for last year and he was really excited to try and do the same again in 2024. The #70 will now have surgery on Tuesday to fix the problem, with the decision having been made that this was the best course of action, in order to get him back fit and healthy and racing as quickly as possible.

“Unfortunately, I just haven’t been able to recover in time to race the MXGP of Spain this weekend,” Fernandez said. “It is a big disappointment because obviously it is my home GP and I love racing in front of all the fans here. However, after trying to ride a small amount on Wednesday, and then having a doctor check-up on Thursday, it was decided that surgery to repair the ACL would be the best approach, and one that would see back to pain-free racing in a positive timeline. A big thank you for all the support I’ve received and I hope to see you at the track, even if I won’t be lining up on the gate.”
