It seems that rather than a broken wrist, like many originally thought, Tommy Searle has sustained a fractured left arm. More details are beginning to trickle through, so we will continue to update you.
Unfortunately, Tommy Searle crashed very hard in the opening MXGP moto at the GP of Thailand earlier today, and has sustained an injury as a result. We have now received official confirmation that Tommy has indeed broken his wrist. The popular British rider tweeted the following from his personal account:
“At the hospital have broke my wrist and just a concussion. Probably biggest crash of my life bike cut out on the take off because of the fuel we have had to run over here at this race.. Just bad it done it there on that jump.”
Get well soon Tommy, from everyone at MX Vice!
