Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Nathan Watson has today undergone surgery to repair a fractured bone in his left wrist.

Sustaining the injury during the first free practise session at the ADAC MX Masters Series in Furstlich Drehna, Germany on Saturday, Nathan will miss this weekend’s MXGP of Trentino. Doctors predict a recovery time of four to six weeks.

Recording the fifth best time during the practice session, Nathan landed flat over a jump, directly hitting a large braking bump. The significant impact left Nathan with the fracture.


Getting a well-deserved top 15 result in Argentina, Nathan was starting to return to his best following his heavy fall at the opening round of the MXGP series in Qatar. Remaining positive, Nathan is focused on a possible return to racing at his home MXGP event at Matterley Basin, Great Britain, on May 24.

Dirt Bike Rider joins Husqvarna Motorcycles in wishing Nathan all the best for a speedy recovery.
