Evgeny Bobryshev forced to miss Grand Prix of Great Britain

Posted:

Honda World Motocross rider Evgeny Bobryshev will not ride at this weekend's (20-21 August) Grand Prix of Great Britain due to an injury sustained in the Belgian National Championship round at Balen earlier this week.

After complaining of discomfort in his back in the days following his collision with Clement Desalle at Monday's Belgian Championship race, Bobryshev was taken to Stoke Mandeville Spinal Injury Unit in Ayelsbury, to undergo further tests and for an X-ray.

The results of the X-ray led to an initial diagnosis that he had suffered a broken process on the C7 vertebra. Because of this he has been advised not to ride this weekend as to do so may put him at risk of further injury. Further tests are due to be carried out this weekend and into next week, to ascertain a possible date for return.

"I am absolutely devastated that I cannot ride this weekend's GP of Great Britain as I was really looking forward to returning to the UK to race and really pumped about riding again at Matterley Basin," the Russian said. "But I have to be sensible in these situations, as I do not want to do any more injury to myself. I am aiming to be back as soon as possible but at the moment we will have to wait and see when that can be."

Lorenzo Resta, Team Manager, Honda World Motocross, added, "For sure all the team are close to Evgeny in this moment. It is a massive shame that he cannot ride this weekend but we have to take in consideration the health of the rider long-term as a primary concern. It has been a great season for him so far and we do not want to jeopardise this at this stage. The main concern is to focus on recovery and to come back stronger than before."
