Jordi Tixier injured his hand while at the Hawkstone International last month. It was the latest setback in a long list of injuries since moving up to the MXGP class after winning the MX2 world championship in 2014.
Around two weeks ago he posted an update on his injury along with some gnarly images of his injuries and was understandably a little down.
The doctors had discovered that the BOS GP rider had snapped a tendon in his right hand (warning: graphic images on this link) and he didn’t know when he would be able to return to action.
Today Tixier has been able to announce some much better news, saying on social media that he will be back to racing, he hopes, within weeks with a targetted return to the Motocross World Championship round of Trentino in Italy on April 8. “Hello everybody, got some positive news from my doctor yesterday,” he wrote on Instagram. “Everything going in the good way. I should be back on the bike in few weeks. Our goal is to be ready for Trentino MXGP. Thanks to all for your support. Miss it [riding] so much.”
Hopefully, we’ll be able to stop using the phrase ‘luckless rider’ and he’ll come back and have a long injury-free run.
