Brian Bogers recovering from foot injury
He was immediately tended to by track medical staff, and transported to the local hospital before moving to a specialist clinic.
There, a foot specialist familiar with operating on sportsmen conducted a two-hour surgery on Thursday night to repair Brian’s right foot. He had suffered a complex fracture-dislocation of the right foot, and the first surgery effected a temporary reduction and fixation.
Bogers returned home to Belgium on Sunday 26 November, and received further medical checks from Dr Toon Claes. On 4 December he was operated on by Dr Claes to effect a full reduction and fixation on the foot.
Brian and Team HRC are working on a timeframe of three months to return to riding, with a view to making his factory team debut aboard the #5 Honda CRF450RW as soon as practically and safely possible after that. Honda and HRC are fully supporting Brian in his full recovery and return to racing.
