Ken De Dycker Out with Shoulder Injury (Update)

Red Bull KTM’s Ken de Dycker will undergo surgery tomorrow to repair two broken bones in his right shoulder, according to his website keenomx.com. De Dycker crashed in the first moto yesterday at the MXGP of Germany and an MRI today revealed the damage. It won’t be known until after surgery how long de Dycker will be sidelined.

Teutschenthal left its mark on the 2015 FIM World Motocross Championship. MXGP points leader Max Nagl injured his ankle Saturday in qualifying, while MX2 points leader Jeffrey Herlings and Wilvo Nestaan’s Alex Tonkov both left the race with shoulder injuries after separate crashes in the first MX2 moto.

De Dycker is currently eleventh in MXGP points.

[Update: June 24]

De Dycker has undergone successful surgery on his right shoulder and is expected to miss at least six weeks. He will return to the doctor for an evaluation on July 22 at which time it will be determined if he can begin riding.
