Watson Out of the Italian Grand Prix

Monster Energy Kemea Yamaha MX2’s Ben Watson has been forced to withdraw from the fifteenth round of the FIM MX2 World Championship in Imola, Italy, following a heavy fall in the warm-up this morning.

4-laps into the ‘warm-up’ session, Watson crashed after he lost traction on the face of the finish-line jump and landed off line. The 22-year-old suffered a broken Radius in the fall and will be unable to race the two championship races this afternoon.

The British rider will return to his residence in Belgium this afternoon where he will seek further medical advice. An update on his return to racing will be shared on www.Yamaha-Racing.com and Yamaha's Official social media platforms when available.
