Maxime Renaux and Jago Geerts Injury Updates heading to Swedish Grand Prix

MXPG Spain 2023, Arroyomolinos Rider: Renaux

 The Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP could be back to full strength this weekend with the return of Maxime Renaux. Over the past three months, Renaux has been meticulously nursing an injured foot back to racing condition. He finally received the green light to ride again two weeks ago, which marked a significant milestone in his recovery journey. However, his participation in the upcoming Swedish Grand Prix is not certain. The final decision depends on his comfort during this week’s practice sessions.

Similarly, in MX2, the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MX2 team is hopeful about the possible return of Jago Geerts, who withdrew from the Finnish Grand Prix after sustaining a broken collarbone in an unavoidable incident in Race One. The decision regarding Geerts’ participation will be made on Friday. Despite missing three Grands Prix this season through untimely injuries, the talented Belgian remains in second position in the MX2 Championship Standings.

Maxime Renaux: “My recovery went well. It was quite a serious injury, so it took some time to heal. I feel great to be back doing what I love. I really missed it. Obviously, it will take some time to get back to race fitness, but I am really happy to start the process. If I feel good this week, I might line up for the GP. I like the track of Uddevalla. It has always been fun to race there. I want to be back on gate as soon as I can to start building again. But for now, there is no rush, no pressure, and no expectations. We are just trusting the process.”

Jago Geerts: “I’m not feeling too bad. Things are starting to get better. I have an appointment with the doctor this week to see how it’s all healing, and then I will know if I can get back on the bike. Obviously, it will be difficult to be ready for Sweden, but I will try to be back. We will see.”
