Pauls Jonass OUT for MXGP of Trentino – Injury update

MXPG Switzerland 2023, Frauenfeld Rider: Jonass

Standing Construct Honda Team has recently announced that Pauls Jonass will be out for round 4 of the MXGP World Championship due to a big crash in the second race in Switzerland that left the Latvian banged up with some injuries. No doubt this is a bummer, especially after a promising start with a top 5 in round 1 in Argentina and then a good top 10 in Riola Sardo.

Without Jonass, Team Standing Construct Honda head to Trentino with all his hopes on Brian Bogers as the only rider for the team.

Press Release:

Unfortunately, Pauls Jonass will not be on the gate at the MXGP of Trentino in Pietramurata, Italy, this weekend. Pauls suffered a nasty crash during the second heat of the Swiss Grand Prix in Frauenfeld, leaving him severely bruised with a large hematoma on his hip and thigh. After seeking medical advice from a specialist in Herentals, Belgium, it has been deemed impossible for Pauls to safely ride a motorcycle in the coming days. This has led to the difficult decision of withdrawing him from the MXGP of Trentino.

Pauls will now shift his focus towards recovery, aiming to be in top shape for the MXGP of Portugal in two weeks. Thanks to all the fans for their unwavering support!
