Kay de Wolf will miss the Grand Prix of Sardegna, the eighth round of the 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship, after being struck by a motorist whilst cycling after a very productive day of riding on Wednesday, May 11.
The motorist took full blame for the incident that left de Wolf with a clean fracture of one of the metacarpal bones in his hand. De Wolf has been put in a cast for a short period and will strive to return to racing as quickly as possible.
Rasmus Jorgensen (Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing Team Manager), said, “What can I say? The season so far is difficult to describe without using any cuss words. First and foremost, it is important to mention that in a situation where Kay was so extremely unlucky to be involved in this, he was also very lucky that he did not hurt himself more. It is difficult to accept a situation like this, as the driver of the car took full blame. Kay was just doing his recovery cycle after a good final day of preparation on the bike for the sand of Riola Sardo this weekend. It is what it is, and we will not give up!”
