Billy Bolt breaks leg in training accident

Broken leg rules Billy Bolt out of this weekend's SuperEnduro World Championship season opener in Krakow, Poland.

 

In what is described as “an eleventh hour injury” Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider Billy Bolt has injured his left leg in a training accident. The injury rules Bolt, surely a contender for the 2019 World title, out from taking the start of the first round of the 2019 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship.

It is understood Bolt had the accident during a planned, final training ride resulted in a fractured left Fibula. 

The Rockstar Husky press release states Bolt is “hugely disappointed that he won’t be able to carry his World Enduro Super Series winning momentum over into what would be his second season of SuperEnduro competition.”

The release goes on to say, “Bolt and the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team are awaiting the results of MRI scans in order to plan Billy’s recovery. It is hoped that Bolt will return to racing in the New Year.”

Bolt will join Jonny Walker as another of the leading contenders indoors ruled out of contention for the 2019 Championship due to injury.
