Rattray knee injury ends World Championship quest
Red Bull Champ KTM rider Tyla Rattray will miss the remainder of the MX2 FIM World Championship after an MRI scan yesterday in Belgium revealed that he has torn his ACL in his right knee.
The Grand Prix of Flanders winner will go under the knife tomorrow (Wednesday) in Belgium and will have to rest for three weeks before starting a three to four month rehab period. The ligament had been torn in two, the lateral ligaments had also been stretched and the MRI showed damage to the meniscus and cartilage.
The news is a further blow to the Champ squad who have already lost Marc de Reuver for the campaign when the Dutchman snapped all three ligaments during a pre-season international race. They now field one rider in the form of Britain’s Carl Nunn although KTM are working on a contingency plan.
