Twisted knee side-lines Searle

Kawasaki MXGP and current UK MX1 Champion, Tommy Searle, took an unlucky tumble in pre-season training at Glen Helen in the USA recently.

Catching his foot in a rut while riding his 2017 KX450-F, the 26 year old Team Green rider underwent corrective surgery to the muscle tissue in the lateral area of his right knee under the direction of a specialist motorsports surgeon very soon after the accident. 
 
Allowing the greatest time for a full recovery before the start of the 2017 season, it does mean the Monster Energy Dixon racing rider will miss the UK Arenacross series but he hopes to be on a bike soon and is predicting the injury will not affect his prospects in MXGP. 
 
“It’s a harsh fact that motocross practice cannot be half-hearted, it’s as demanding and risk prone as racing itself”, commented Searle as he recuperated at his home in the UK.
 
“I have some great medical, dietary and physiotherapy professionals to call on and the severity of the injury is not causing any concern. Now it’s just a case of focussing all my thoughts and energy on a swift recovery. I’ll know more in a few weeks but right now I am not stressing about it.”
