CRUMP INJURED IN RUSSIA
Thursday 19th July 2012, 14:43
Triple world champion Jason Crump’s SGP title hopes suffered a hammer-blow after he sustained a broken collarbone in a Russian league match at Vladivostok.
The 36-year-old, who was racing for the Far Eastern club at home to SGP rival Emil Sayfutdinov’s Balakovo team, crashed with the visitors’ Viktor Borodulin in heat six.
Crump confirmed he had picked up a broken collarbone on his official Twitter account, but it is unclear how long it will keep him sidelined.
If the Australian international is forced out of the FIM Fogo Croatian SGP in Gorican on July 28, his place would be taken by second reserve Krzysztof Kasprzak, who would line-up in the No.20 race jacket.
This is because first reserve Martin Vaculik has already been drafted into the meeting to cover for Jaroslaw Hampel, who is still recovering from the broken leg he suffered in Copenhagen.
