When Hugo Frixtalon tell you to go shoot somewhere you don t ask questions and just do it.

Hugo Frixtalon has announced on social media that he will be missing the rest of the racing in Maribor after a nasty crash yesterday which has resulted in a broken wrist.

The crash happened while practicing the huge triple gap which riders have been hitting on the revised Round 2 course. After misjudging the estimated 40-foot gap, Hugo walked away with what is suspected to be a broken wrist.

bigquotesOut of the game! Broke my wrist on this one today! Wait to back home to do more exam! Thanks to my team to all they do for us these past 2 weeks and I will be back soon. Hugo Frixtalon - Instagram


We're wishing Hugo a speedy recovery and hope to see him back riding and racing soon.

 Good thing that cameraman was there to ask him if he was ok before he finished sliding to a stop. I find it's always better to begin interrogating injured people before even they know what happened.

 As a filmer, I tend to do the same thing and try and get a response as soon as possible. Hard to tell if someone is out after a big crash, and it's good to hear anything.

 at least he kept filming. Friday Fails standard is to point the camera at the floor before the rider comes to a stop

 I think it's just a natural response, if I see a mate crash badly it's the first thing that comes to mind. If it's not a bad crash they might have to wait a while so I can get the laughter out of my system.

 Do your best to enjoy the rest/relaxation time Frix, you're the man, take it easy, and glad this was not that bad all things considered.

 A perfect example of double taping to ensure the rider and their bike in the event of an incident does not meet a spectator, injuring both parties.
