Remy Gardner breaks legs and ankle in training | Manufacture News | News
The Australian Moto2 racer Remy Gardner has broken both legs and an ankle in a motocross training crash.
Two broken legs and a broken ankle is the result of a crash for Remy Gardner while training with his MX bike. The Aussie is now at the Clinica Dexeus in Barcelona. He is in hands of the same surgery team who recently repaired Dani Pedrosa’s broken wrist.
“It’s very disappointing news that we received today from Wayne Gardner informing us that Remy apparently broke his two legs and one ankle, which means of course he won’t be in Jerez,” said Tech 3 Team Principal Herve Poncharal.
“It looks like he could be out for a few weeks, so clearly he won’t be able to race this weekend, which is a big shame, because Remy was having the best start of his young career in Moto2 with a good race in Qatar, a really, really strong race in Argentina.
“Texas was a bit less competitive, but still holding a good position in the championship.
“Unfortunately, it is what it is and he isn’t the first one with an accident in training.
“Every year, race by race, MotoGP Championship riders are getting injured while training. It’s a shame, but this is life.”
Remy will definitely not be able to race at Jerez this weekend. His replacement will be Hector Garzo.
“I’m really happy to have another opportunity with the Tech3 Racing team, although it’s a pity to have to take over the place of Remy,” adds Hector Garzo. “I wish him a very fast recovery! I will give my best for my second GP. I aim to improve step by step, learn as much as possible during the weekend and as it is the Spanish Grand Prix for sure, I will give it all.”
