MotoGP: Ben Spies in the hospital: accident with the Enduro

An accident of a certain gravity (broken collarbone, scapula, two ribs and a slight injury to a lung) stopped Ben Spies while training for his new adventure.

Here's what he posted on Instagram.

Unfortunately I’m gonna have to miss the first 2 or 3 rounds of the @nepgenduro series. Super bummed as felt I was getting into a rhythm with everything on the bike. The games we play! #brokenbones #dirtbikes #stupid #nicetube #dadintrouble

The American therefore will not be at the start of the inaugural appointment of the AMA National Enduro, scheduled for February 4th at Wedgefield. in South Carolina.

Probably the US, winner of the World Superbike in 2009, will have to skip the second and even the third round of the series. The return is then expected for May 6, on the occasion of the stage in Arrington, Virginia.
