SBK, Niki Tuuli’s foot after toe amputation

The Finnish rider, busy in the SuperSport, showed the condition of his left foot with three toes amputated after his fall at Estoril.

SBK: Niki Tuuli’s foot after toe amputation


The last image we have of him on the track dates back to the Estoril warm-up, after a very bad fall that forced Niki Tuuli to have three toes amputated.

Tuuil can’t race and won’t be racing at  Donington either. Mattia Casadei, already busy with MV Agusta at Misano, will be racing for him.

Meanwhile, Tuuli posted an Instagram story, of his foot for the first time following the amputation. It’s a powerful image, but one that demonstrates his desire of a comeback as soon as possible. His name is now on the list with other colleagues also forced to undergo amputations, such as Bayliss, Sheene, and Beattie

We wish Tuuli a speedy recovery.
