Team mechanic/wrangler Matt Dupelle reports: A quick Weekend update of the race here in Africa: Unfortunately Andrew had a crash on his first day of practice that ended with him breaking his knee and having to be rushed back to Australia to get surgery. We are waiting to hear from him to tell us the final verdict from his doctors. Connor had a great race for this track, he ended up in 25th place overall and got some tv time as well. This track has some good sections and good jumps but also has a 1km flat pedal that doesn’t work to Connor’s advantage, but it’s a great start for Connor not being far from the top 20 and having all the good tracks to come for the rest of the season (in a way this was getting rid of the one bad one).
Now we are off to Cairns Australia for the next WC #2
