Toni Bou injured in France

The Repsol Honda Team rider will rest following a fall in Le Mans

Toni Bou suffered a major fall on Sunday night while disputing an X-Trial event in Le Mans, France. The X-Trial World Champion took a heavy blow against a concrete element, which saw him forced to abandon the event before being taken away for an examination at the hospital.

Today, after medical tests performed in Barcelona, it has been confirmed that Toni Bou has suffered a fracture of the right apophysis transverse of the lumbar vertebrae L2-L3-L4.

Doctor has recommended rest from all sporting activity for the rider, stating that the evolution of the injury will dictate when Bou is able to return to action, although it is unlikely to be in the next three weeks. Bou's goal is to return to the competition as soon as possible after recovering from his injury.
