Shaun’s comeback to Grand Prix racing lasted mere seconds after an accident in Qualification today at Ottobiano for round eleven

The Wilvo Yamaha man went down exiting the first corner of the qualification heat in stifling conditions at the renovated sandy circuit southwest of Milan and in what was #24’s first MXGP appearance since recovering from a broken hand. Shaun was clipped by several riders and upon getting to his feet felt pain in his left arm and elbow.

A swift trip to hospital confirmed a fracture above the left wrist and another small break around the elbow. Shaun returned to the circuit in order to gathering belongings and make the trip through the evening back to Belgium for an appointment with Dr Claes and the scalpel on Sunday.
