Jeffrey Herlings and Romain Febvre are standing still and won’t be back anytime soon, we’ll see who will be the first to hold on to the 2022 title fight!
Below their comments on injuries!
“I fell in Paris and broke my tibia and fibula, it was a bad injury but it was repaired quite well by a good doctor. I still have to wait and I don’t know exactly how long, but the plan is to start the season in Argentina. I’ll see, yesterday I had a check-up with the doctor and he actually allowed me to try to drive, but I still feel I can’t race, I can probably drive on a flat track but that’s not the goal. I think I’ll wait another two weeks and then get on the bike, hopefully: the goal is to go back to racing in Argentina, ” Febvre said.
“Good question (about when will he be back). I don’t know, but we were doing a photo shoot and had a race (the day before) along with a lot of testing so I was a little tired. We were doing a photo shoot, I jumped and took a crisscross groove in two lines and went over the handlebar. While maybe it looked like a spectacular crash, it wasn’t at high speed and I landed on my shoulder and both feet, pfft. Thankfully it was on my heel and I didn’t shatter anything in my feet which is good because the other foot is already in bad shape a few years ago – I keep struggling with it every day. This, thankfully, is not that lucky, but I broke my heel and it happened just over a week ago. It will take some time and I still don’t know when I’ll be back, but the injury will most likely heal 100%. It just came at the wrong time, for sure we will lose some races, I don’t know how many for now – it could be 2, it could be 4, it could be more or it could be less, I don’t know. We will wait and see, but I just want to get healthy again, in the past I started running too fast and I fell again, I don’t want that to happen again. I want to be completely healed and then we’ll see what we can still do ”. I don’t want that to happen again. I want to be completely healed and then we’ll see what we can still do ”.
