Pauls Jonass will miss the opening round one of the 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship, the Grand Prix of Great Britain after undergoing surgery earlier this week for tendonitis he has suffered in his arm throughout the winter months.
Jonass had surgery in Herentals, Belgium, on Monday and will aim to return to racing at the second stop of the 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship in Italy on March 06. It was a very successful procedure that requires ten days of recovery.
Standing Construct Husqvarna Factory Racing Team Manager Tim Mathys said, “Pauls got tendonitis in his forearm whilst testing in January. We immediately consulted the specialists, who were convinced that rest would solve the problem. The tendonitis got worse, unfortunately, and surgery was needed to heal the arm. We planned the surgery for the Monday after Matterley Basin’s initial date. There was a free weekend between Matterley Basin and Mantova, before the postponement, so the hope was that he would not miss a Grand Prix. The plan was ruined when the opening round was pushed back by a week. Although we are disappointed that Pauls cannot race this weekend, it is a long season and our goals remain the same.”
