Jago Geerts Withdraws from Argentine Grand Prix Due to Injury

Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP’s Jago Geerts has been ruled out of the opening round of the FIM Motocross World Championship in Villa la Angostura, Argentina, after sustaining an arm injury in yesterday’s Qualifying Race.

After falling at turn one, Geerts fell again after hitting a sharp kicker that consequently threw him over the handlebars on lap two. The talented rookie, who set the seventh fastest lap in Timed Practice, suffered severe pain in his left arm and went straight to the Bariloche Hospital for closer assessment. There, it was confirmed that his left clavicle and elbow were fractured.

Geerts will now travel home to Belgium, where he will consult with a specialist to determine the best course of action for his recovery. An update on his treatment plan and possible return to action will be shared on www.Yamaha-Racing.com when available.
