Knee Injury For Alex
Eager to build on his result from Crans Montana, Mountain Cross 7 mounted Alex Fayolle felt confident of doing just that following practice. But a tough power stage put him on the back foot and when pushing hard to recover, he crashed on stage five injuring his knee.
“I’m disappointed to not finish today. I was really hoping for a good result here,” told Alex. “Rain overnight and this morning made conditions slippery early on.
“I think that’s what caught me out on the stage and I crashed hard. My knee was pretty banged up and so it was better to stop early than risk injuring it further.”
Alex now looks to recover and regroup for the final round of the series two weeks time in Scotland.
