Daniel McCoy Sidelined With Back Injury

Posted:

TM Racing Australia‰Ûªs Daniel McCoy has been ruled out of the upcoming rounds of the 2014 Monster Energy MX Nationals after suffering a back injury while testing over the Easter Long Weekend.

McCoy headed up to Coolum to contest the Queensland state motocross championship in an effort to further develop his TM MX 250 two stroke ahead of round three of the MX Nationals slated for this Sunday at Wonthaggi, Victoria.

Unfortunately McCoy bent a rear brake lever in the opening moto of the championships working his way through the field resulting in a DNF. A second DNF in race two left TM Racing re-assessing their options for the weekend, choosing to spend Sunday away from the race track continuing to develop McCoy‰Ûªs race bike.

While the team was able to make some great progress with the bike and where excited with how testing was progressing, a crash in the afternoon left McCoy with a damaged L2, L3 and T12 in his vertebra that will sideline the New South Welshman for the next three rounds of National competition.

While McCoy will be absent from this weekends round of the MX Nationals, TM will still be very well represented with Joel Milesevic and Joel Evan‰Ûªs both racing in the MX2 class.

Milesevic will line up aboard his EMU Racing TM MX 250 two stroke with the aim of climbing into the top ten overall after just missing out at Appin where he finished 11th.

Evans who showed some great pace himself at the Queensland championships aboard his Full Force Racing Components TM Machine will be looking to build on his top 20 result at the second round of the MX Nationals.

‰ÛÏThere is no doubt last weekend was bitter sweet,‰Û
