Graeme Irwin has been injured during the second race at the MXGP of Italy and is currently being treated at the hospital in Imola.
We understand the Hitachi ASA KTM rider may have broken his wrist and we are waiting for further information.
It puts the Northern Irishman’s place in MXoN Team Ireland in serious doubt and with his Motocross of Nations bike already shipped to the USA ready for RedBud – now just six days away – it leaves the Irish team in a difficult position.
