News filtered through on Saturday that the luckless Ben Townley injured himself at round 2 of the Aussie championships. The injury this time was a dislocation of his hip but after reading his tweets yesterday it sounds a little complicated.
This is the latest news from Ben, “for everyone asking, my hip is back in place, but I need surgery to repair it as it’s a bit of a mess. will update when there is more news”
With Hangtown just over a month away will the TwoTwo Motorsport Honda team have a rider on the start line? Chad Reed signed the Kiwi star as his replacement but after this weekends injury Ben may not have enough time to get himself 100% fit.
Apart from joking about Ricky Carmichael riding for his team, Chad Reed hasn’t released an official statement as of yet apart from this tweet on Sunday, “Everyone asking about BT.. I know as much as you guys. Getting no replies and no answers..
Lets hope Ben is back to full fitness sooner rather than later and lines up for TwoTwo Motorsport at Hangtown on May 19th.
Here’s a brief interview with Ben’s mechanic after his crash on Saturday.
