Blog | Hanro hurt at the Aragon test

Hello Everyone,
At last after 4 months of waiting the Red Bull Rookies Cup for 2014 kicked off with testing at Aragon. I had an excellent first day at testing and progressed slowly but sure to the second day with an unfortunate highside in the 3rd Free Practice Session...

The medics advised me to have a X-ray taken at the hospital and it later showed that I sustained a fracture on my left wrist. My hand is mobilised in plaster for 3 weeks and I might miss the first race at Jerez.

Many thanks to Red Bull Rookies Cup management for their support after my accident and my mechanic Juan for repairing my bike!

Good luck to all the other Red Bull Rookies Cup riders for the remainder of the testing, especially for my mate Darren Binder to keep the South African flag flying high.
