MX2 World Champion Tom Vialle will sit out this weekend’s MXGP of Netherlands at Oss to recover from a fractured right hand.

The Red Bull KTM rider has been advised to remain on the sidelines for the forthcoming fixture after suffering a small break in his right hand during a training accident prior to the second MXGP round of 2021 in Great Britain.

The 20 year old tried to compete at Matterley Basin and the Italian Grand Prix at Maggiora the following weekend but suffered too much pain and had to withdraw from action.

Vialle’s fracture has almost healed but any further stress on the bone could produce a setback. The Frenchman will therefore eye the Grand Prix of Czech Republic at Loket for a competitive return on July 25.

“The Grand Prix in Oss came just a bit too soon,’ explained Vialle. “The bone has not healed 100% so we still need to wait a little before practicing and racing again. We will make another check-up next week and I hope to ride in Loket.”
