Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing confirmed that Romain Febvre has sustained a broken femur just moments ago, but Team France have already reacted and named a fill-in rider. Gautier Paulin (MXGP) and Tom Vialle (MX2) will stay in the same classes, of course, and then Jordi Tixier will race in the Open category. Tixier represented the team at RedBud last year, so is no stranger to the event.
Stay tuned to MX Vice for more on this in the coming days.
