Kevin Strijbos will miss the Grand Prix of France due to injury.
By Hayden Gregory
In yet another blow for the Suzuki World MXGP team, Kevin Strijbos has been ruled out of this weekend’s event.
The Belgian rider took to Facebook to share his frustration with a fractured wrist.
“I will not be riding in France this weekend. Went to the doctor for a last check up and i have a fracture in the joint capsule of the wrist, its still pretty swollen and no movement. Need some MRI scan tomorrow to see what’s gonna happen . Hope to be back in England!”
It has been a struggle for team manager Stefan Everts to get two riders on the starting gate this season with Ben Townley also missing a number of rounds through illness and injury.
