Red Bull KTM factory rider Max Nagl of Germany is recovering after successful surgery to a fractured collarbone and will be back riding as soon as possible.

Nagl, one of the three KTM factory riders contesting the MX1 World Championship crashed during qualifying for the French MX1 GP on Saturday.

Doctors are pleased with the outcome of the surgery and satisfied with Nagl's progress. Given the high level of fitness of the rider, they are confident that the fracture will heal without complications. KTM spokesperson Valentina Ragni said Max was in good spirits and expects to be back on his KTM in the shortest possible time.
