Angel Suarez Suffered Dislocated Shoulder in Maribor

Angel Suarez, the sole rider of the YT Mob race team, crashed during qualifying in Maribor and has suffered a dislocated shoulder.

Angel was on course to qualify having got 15th at the first split but a mistake on the latter part of the track took him out of the race. The result of the crash was a dislocated shoulder and Angel is expecting to see a doctor this week to hear when he can make a return to the racing circuit.

bigquotes“The track here in Maribor was amazing but it was difficult to find a good rhythm on the first day of training. By the second day, I started to feel much better and for qualifying I was feeling really comfortable, even in the rain. I was doing a super smooth run but made a really small mistake which caused me to crash and dislocate my left shoulder. It’s a big disappointment, again, but I just want to be back as soon as possible.”Angel Suarez


We hope Angel Suarez can make a quick recovery and be back on track in time for Fort William at the beginning of June.

 He's a good rider, he just has a had a few badly timed injuries. I think he's had a few top 20 finishes back when Gwin was on the team. I think if you finish in the top 40 at a WC you're a pretty fast rider.

 Mate, if you can get a KOM on Strava you're a pretty fast rider. If you qualify for a WC, you're a faster than 99.8% of riders. So yeah, top 40 makes you a pretty fast rider.

 Hahaha. "a pretty fast rider." I'd say we can't even comprehend how fast these people are actually going. Top 40 finish at a WC means you're pretty frigging fast, faster than anyone I know rider...

 Most overpriced rider in the fantasy league.

 @jclnv: He got dropped by YT at the end of the season. Also whenever Gwin has left a team it's always been at the end of a contract year so whether or not a team wants to re-sign/look for better offers it's just business. Why is it bad that he wants to earn as much as he can racing? All these guys could have a career ending injury at any moment, not to mention there is a 'lifespan' of a competitive DH racer. The dude was doing manual labor working construction and got the opportunity of a lifetime, he should take full advantage of it!

 He will find his rhythm, and he is a really fast rider. I just hope at such a young age, after already having shoulder surgery, its not too fucked up, and he can get back to racing. This guys body really needs a solid, crash free season. Good luck and have a speedy recovery Mr. YT Man.

 I feel sorry for him, hope its not bad karma for YT effecting him after they just shafted all the buyers of the Tues Pro race by reducing the price by £1000 a few weeks after release

 What about Christopher Walken? Is he going to be at Fort Bill? Wink

 So some people have complained here about how spaced out the races are; a MONTH until fort william, our next world cup fix?? Whats a junkie to do for so long???

What about the time it gives athletes to recover from injuries? Surely theres benefit there.

 Racing was fun last year with minaar and gwin out. The top 2 riders from the yeAr before. I personally can’t wait for dh to have a busier schedule as the sport and it’s sponsorship grows,

 this dude is getting a lot of hype but i can't say anything I'm not pro, but he hasn't proven to anyone here that he is a huge contender in the league. healing vibes though

 Sad how YT went from center stage to barely talked about...I guess their gamble hasn't paid off? From the sounds of the shady gambit they pulled on Gwin maybe they deserve it. ..

 Greedy Gwin has to switch teams often.

 @jclnv: smart Gwin goes where the money is.

 @Speeder01: Smart Gwin lost out when no team would pay him what he wanted, and he lost his contract extension offer with YT after he gave them the finger because they wouldn't cough up lots more money. Smart Gwin is now self-employed. True story.

 Shouldn't have let Gwin go... sucks for Angel.
