2015 EMX250 race winner Adam Sterry could be just two weeks away from climbing onboard his Wilvo Virus Performance KTM 250SX-F and plotting his debut as a full-time Grand Prix rider.
The 19-year-old has been impatiently waiting for the left wrist he broke in practice for the season-opening round in Qatar to heal and be strong enough to start lapping on the 811 race bike.
“I have limited flexibility at the moment and I’m due another x-ray before getting the all-clear but I could be riding again in two weeks,” Adam said. “I was already training again just nine days after the operation and have been having intensive physio with Harris and Ross to get better as fast as I can.”
Sterry was present at last weekend’s Grand Prix of Europe at Valkenswaard and at the site where he notched an impressive EMX250 success in 2015. He made several GP appearances in 2015, notably catching the eye for a top ten finish in Argentina, but ’16 was set to be his first in MX2 until the heavy landing at Losail then led to the clean wrist fracture.
