EVERTS TO MISS THE YPF INFINIA MXGP OF PATAGONIA-ARGENTINA OPENER AFTER SUCCESSFUL HAND SURGERY

MX2 Grand Prix winner Liam Everts will sit out the first round of the 2024 MXGP series at Villa La Angostura in Argentina on March 9-10 to recover from an injury to his right thumb, sustained in in pre-season.

The Belgian MX2 contender athlete suffered a fall while in preparation for the new season. After undergoing an operation on Thursday the 19-year-old requires a month of convalescence before he can get back on his bike and could be in contention for the second fixture of the year in late March at the MXGP of Spain.

Harry Norton, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager: “Tough news for Liam and the team but we all know these setbacks can happen. The operation went well and now we need that four-week period for him to feel strong and to get full use of his hand. Argentina is out, but we are hopeful that his recovery goes to plan and Liam can start his championship in Madrid.”
