Currently 6th in the FIM Maxxis SuperEnduro World Championship 2018, the Spanish star Alfredo GOMEZ (Husqvarna) seriously injured his right leg at the beginning of the week.

He was immediately transported to the hospital, where the doctors announced that GOMEZ had badly broken his fibula as well sustaining serious damage to the ligaments of his right knee. Even though he is expecting further examinations, the rider from Madrid should received surgery in the next few days...
Andi HÖLZL - Rockstar Husqvarna Factory Racing Team Manager: "We do not yet know the full extent of the damage from Alfredo's injury. It was not a very big fall. For the moment, we just know that Alfredo fractured the fibula as well as damaged ligaments of the knee, but we expect a more precise report. The team joins me in wishing him a good recovery and we hope to see him again soon by our side."
