The Canadian rider is ruled out for the first round of the WSX Championship due to a late injury.

Cole Thompson was expecting to race this weekend at the first round of the World Supercross Championship at Birmingham as part of the ClubMX FXR Yamaha team in the SX2 class. However, doctors found a disc herniation.

“Around 2 weeks ago I started experiencing pain in my lower back, & throughout my right leg.” Wrote Cole Thompson via Instagram “The pain progressively worsened & everyday life became difficult. MRI results showed a disc herniation with a compressed right S1 nerve root. Now understand the problem, I can begin to recover & back to doing what I love. It’s frustrating not being able to ride but living in constant pain takes a toll on the body. I’m just ready to start feeling better & be 100% again.”

According to the WSX format, each team has to present a full four-riders lineup for each GP. With less than a week before round 1, the team is obliged to announce a replacement as soon as possible. Maybe one of the options will be Phil Nicoletti who already rode for the team in the United States.
