That black cloud continues to follow Tommy Searle, as an "unlucky tumble" during pre-season training in the USA left with a knee injury. Searle reportedly caught his foot in a rut, then had to have corrective surgery to the muscle tissue in the lateral area.
Searle will now give up on all of his pre-season plans and attempt to get ready for the first round of the FIM Motocross World Championship. “I have some great medical, dietary and physiotherapy professionals to call on and the severity of the injury is not causing any concern," commented Searle in a press release. "Now it’s just a case of focussing all my thoughts and energy on a swift recovery. I’ll know more in a few weeks but, right now, I am not stressing about it."
