Monster Energy Yamaha’s Thibault Benistant is out for the remainder of the 2021 MXGP World Motocross championship, after sustaining a knee injury.

The decision to withdraw the 19 year old Frenchman from the final two races of the season was taken by Yamaha in consultation with the team. Benistant has been assessed by a knee specialist in Lyon, France, on Wednesday fourth of November. Once the full extent of the injury is understood, a program for his recovery and return to racing will be implemented.

Further updates will be shared on Yamaha Racing’s social media channels when information is available.
