Alfredo Gomez sidelined with knee injury

Posted:

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing‰Ûªs Alfredo Gomez will likely be out of action for the final two rounds of the 2018 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship due to a knee injury sustained while training in Spain.

The Spaniard fell on Tuesday afternoon while training alongside his Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing teammate Colton Haaker. Immediately taken to hospital, it was confirmed that Alfredo suffered a fractured fibula on his right knee as well as ligament damage. Awaiting further medical assessment, Alfredo is expected to undergo surgery in the coming days.

Enjoying a steady start to his 2018 SuperEnduro World Championship campaign, Alfredo is currently sixth in the Prestige class‰Ûª provisional championship standings. Wrapping up his home GP in Malaga last Saturday with a strong runner-up result in the third and final heat, the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing star was looking to continue building on his speed in the last two rounds of the series in Bilbao and Sweden.

While the exact length of Alfredo's recovery is not yet known, the 2017 Erzberg winner is expected to be away from competition for a considerable amount of time.

Andi H̦lzl - Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team Manager, said, ‰ÛÏAt this stage we don't know the full extent of Alfredo‰Ûªs injury, but it goes without saying that this is hugely disappointing for him. We know that it wasn‰Ûªt a big crash ‰ÛÒ a fall on Tuesday, in the matrix section of the SuperEnduro track he was riding on with his team-mate Colton Haaker. Taken to the local hospital, it was confirmed Alfredo suffered a broken fibula to his right knee, as well as damage to the ligaments. We all wish him a speedy recovery and are looking forward to seeing him back in action as soon as possible.‰Û
