Monster Energy Yamaha’s Romain Febvre was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation yesterday after a heavy crash in the second moto at the opening round of the FIM Motocross World Championship in Argentina.
The 2015 MXGP World Champion won the qualifying race on Saturday and finished third to Antonio Cairoli and Tim Gajser in the opening moto on Sunday. Febvre led the opening five laps in the second MXGP moto before crashing in the roller section while running third.
Racer X European contributor Adam Wheeler said Febvre is being treated for a right ankle/foot injury. In a statement released yesterday, the team said it will release more information once they have it.
