If we are to trust Instagram, Ken de Dycker will replace the injured Kevin Strijbos on the Belgium Motocross of Nations team. De Dycker posted a photo on Instagram this morning with Jeremy Van Horebeek and Julien Lieber, the two other members of the team, with the following caption:
"Just back on my bike and now getting ready for THE best race of THE year Mxon!"
Belgium, already without the services of Clement Desalle, lost Strijbos in practice at the MXGP of Mantova to a thumb injury.
De Dycker has not competed since the MXGP of Germany in late June due to a shoulder injury. It is not know if he will return for the final two rounds of the FIM World Motocross Championship in Mexico and the United States in late September. The team has yet to make an official announcement.
