Following his practice crash at Lommel, Belgium, on 12 March in which he fractured a vertebra and broke a rib, Gautier Paulin has been keeping a low profile to focus on his recovery to return fighting fit to the FIM Motocross World Championship, MXGP, with Team HRC.
Gautier Paulin: “Since my crash, my recovery has been going well. I fractured my vertebrae and broke a rib, so in the early days it was not so easy and I chose to stay quiet and just focus on myself. Now, I am feeling much better and I’m back in physical training again off the bike. We haven’t scheduled a return date yet, but I’m working hard to fully recover and keep my fitness at the right level, and I’m looking forward to being back racing as soon as the time is right. We won’t know when this will be until we’re a bit further through the rehabilitation, but I hope it won’t be long. Thanks to HRC, the team and all the fans for their support of me in this time, and I’ll see you on track again soon.”
