Metty Heads To Canada On A High While Arbon Continues To Recover
SD3 Husqvarna and Husqvarna Factory Support racers fought through tough challenges and continued punching well above their weight as this year's MX Nationals series resumed with round four at Murray Bridge.

The entire Husqvarna camp was rocked by the news of a severe injury to MX2 championship contender Luke Arbon on Saturday, after the South Australian fractured his C6 vertebra bedding in a new engine on his home track.

Arbon has fortunately suffered no loss of movement, but is set for a lengthy recovery period and everyone involved in Husqvarna's racing effort in Australia wishes him nothing but good fortune and speedy healing.

"Luke was bedding in an engine on Saturday, on his home track that he's ridden a million times and just came up short and landed on the point of his head." Team owner Steve McKinnon explained. "He had a clean fracture of the C6 vertebra, so there was no displacement at all and no chord damage and he's got movement in all limbs.

"He'll be in hospital for a few days and in a neck brace for a number of weeks, but right now the prognosis is pretty good. It will be a tough recovery, but Luke is a tough cookie so I'm sure he'll be okay.

"He‰Ûªs still in hospital now and working through everything we need to do, but it certainly gave us a scare. Thankfully he will be okay, we‰Ûªve just got a lot of water to go under the bridge before then.‰Û
