Evgeny Bobryshev Joins List Of Top Talent That Will Not Compete At The MXoN In 2014
Conscious of the risk of returning too early from the injury that saw his left tibia and fibula broken in three places in Italy on June 15, Evgeny Bobryshev and Team HRC have decided that the Russian will unfortunately not be able to race at the Motocross of Nations at the end of September.

Whilst his recovery is progressing well and there have been no complications since the surgery in June, the feeling shared by both Bobby and Team HRC was that he wouldn‰Ûªt be sufficiently fit to compete at his best, and the risk of inflaming the injury and thus affecting his condition in the off-season was too great.

‰ÛÏI was riding for the first time again a few days ago. Dr Claes told me the leg is healed 80 per cent, but it‰Ûªs still swollen and there‰Ûªs still tissue damage." Bobryshev explained. "The first day of riding was ok but I was taking it slow round left corners, then on the second day I went to Lommel.

"I touched the leg on the ground in a left corner and there was still pain so I thought ‰Û÷no, I don‰Ûªt want to have to think about my leg when I‰Ûªm riding, I want to concentrate fully on racing‰Ûª.

"It will still take time for my leg to recover fully, and that‰Ûªs why I have decided not to compete in the Motocross of Nations this year.

‰ÛÏI wouldn‰Ûªt be fit and the leg wouldn‰Ûªt have healed enough so I still would have pain. All it takes is another touch and it takes months more to recover, so it‰Ûªs better I let it heal properly. I want to start my preparations for 2015 early.

‰ÛÏI want to race in Latvia, and I was thinking maybe I have enough time, but when the gate drops I just want to go forward and push and when I‰Ûªm not fully fit that‰Ûªs not the best for me. If I force it now, it would maybe take one or two months more so I have to think about what‰Ûªs more important for my future. I want to battle for the title ‰ÛÒ I know I have the speed, I just need the consistency which means I just want to wait until I feel safe to ride.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs frustrating as Latvia is a great place with lots of Russian fans, and especially being the Nations it will be a great event, but I will be there still to watch at Kegums.‰Û
