Tommy Searle underwent successful surgery yesterday following his collision with Evgeny Bobryshev that left the British rider with a broken collarbone.

Searle offered an update this morning on his injury and unfortunately, he’ll be out of action for around four weeks. Thankfully though, there are no further injuries.

That means the MXGP of Portugal will probably be too soon for his return so he could be looking at the Russian GP on May 1 as his target for a return to MXGP with perhaps an outside chance of a wildcard ride in the British championship on April 22 at Canada Heights.


“I got caught up in a crash yesterday off the start after a rider went down in front of me and I couldn’t avoid his bike,” wrote Searle on Instagram. “I had surgery last night to fix my collarbone – that’s the only injury I had so I’m now on the mend. It will be about four weeks I would think, not ideal but had far worse, will keep working hard as I was feeling good.”
