Just heard that Luke Marshall has bust his wrist…so they say.

The increase in speed of this tweaked track seems to be causing a few problems, Cedric Gracia has just had a massive crash, he managed to walk away fine
though (I think) despite snapping his bars in two in the process. Everyone who witnesed it thought that there was no way he’d even get to his feet.

Someone who hasn’t been quite so lucky is Rachel Atherton, on her last run of the practice session she has had a big spill and managed to bust either her
ulna or her wrist, whatever the case she’s definately out of action for this weekend. I hope it doesn’t take too long for her to recover, but with only
five rounds this year i’d say her chances of winning the series are over.
