Newly-crowned world motocross champion, Tim Gajser, has been forced to miss this weekend’s Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations at Maggiora following a crash earlier this week.

The practice crash happened in Slovenia on Wednesday, and while it was reported as only a small off, the 20-year-old was taken to the hospital but was later released with no treatment required.

Despite the crash, Gajser was hoping to line up behind the gate for Team Slovenia, but his regular doctor ordered complete rest.
