Jack Moir has suffered a broken collarbone whilst training and won't be racing at the Fort William World Cup in two weeks time. Here's what Jack had to say:
Yeah so basically I got hooked up in a rock garden and had a slow, shitty little over the bars while training with Deano and Muddy last week. I'm definitely gutted to be missing Fort Bill in a couple weeks, but I am over the disappointment now and am focused 100% on my recovery and being back at the races ASAP.
I’ve had a solid last 2 seasons without any issues, even though I had a few decent crashes. I think sometimes it just comes down to luck. I wasn’t pushing hard or trying anything gnarly this time, but that's just the way it went. The break wasn’t too bad and doesn’t require surgery, so hoping to be back racing in around 8 weeks. Might be a bit of a push for Val di Sole or Andorra as I’ve learnt from past experience not to rush these things. I will just have to see how I’m healing up.
I’ll be at Val di Sole and Andorra hanging out regardless, so come by the Intense pits and say hey!
Massive thanks to Intense for riding the roller coaster with me. We’ve been through some shit together and they always have my back 100%. Also a big thanks to Muddy and the team at Urban Base Fitness, and Newcastle Float Centre for aiding my recovery. With the help of these guys I’ll be back in no time!—Jack Moir
Fort Bill was a special one for me last year. Devastated i’m going to miss it this year, due to a broken collarbone, AGAIN. Disappointed, but ready for the challenge. Feeling so fit, and good on the bike at the moment, and 8 weeks off isn’t going to change that. Thankyou @intensefactoryracing for having my back through the ups and downs.—Jack Moir
