Polish international Krzysztof Buczkowski faces a race against time to be fit for the 2020 season after suffering a broken femur in a motocross crash.
The Grudziadz skipper fell in his homeland on Thursday and underwent surgery on his left femur in Grudziadz that evening. According to media reports, the break is not too bad and he is expected to be discharged today.
The club hopes he will be fit to resume training ahead of the spring, with Buczkowski set to play a key role in his hometown team’s PGE Ekstraliga play-off hopes along with the likes of triple world champion Nicki Pedersen, SGP star Artem Laguta, Kenneth Bjerre and Przemyslaw Pawlicki.
A statement on the Grudziadz official website confirmed: “Our rider suffered a fracture of the left femur.
“Buczek was under the excellent care of doctors and on Thursday evening he underwent surgery in hospital in Grudziadz.
“For now, it is not known how long his break in preparations for the season will last. The prognosis of doctors is optimistic, but it all depends on the progress of his rehabilitation.
“We hope that our captain will recover quickly and resume training as soon as possible before the upcoming season.”
