Two broken legs and a broken ankle, the result of a crash for Remy Gardner while training with his MX bike. The Australian rider is now at the Clinica Dexeus in Barcelona, where Doctor Mir and his staff are evaluating the situation.
Gardner will definitely not be able to race at Jerez this weekend and Team Tech3 has already identified Hector Garzo as the best replacement for the Australian at the Spanish GP. The 19-year old races the Mistral in the CEV championship and stood in for Xavi Vierge at the German GP last year.
“It’s very disappointing news that we received today from Wayne Gardner informing us, that Remy apparently broke his two legs and one ankle, which means of course he won’t be in Jerez. - comments team owner Hervé Poncharal - He will be transferred to the Dexeus Clinica of Dr Mir and we have to wait and see. It looks like he could be out for a few weeks, so clearly, he won’t be able to race this weekend, which is a big shame, because Remy was having the best start of his young career in Moto2. For sure after having nine days of testing in Jerez, we were looking for a good performance there."
“Unfortunately, it is what it is and he isn’t the first one with an accident in training. We are proud to announce that Hector Garzo, who is riding the Mistral 610 in the CEV Moto2 Championship, will replace Gardner. We are happy to see him again and will do everything we can to make him feel comfortable without too much pressure."
