In March this year Dan was devastated to take a fall on a simple training ride which resulted in a hairline fracture to his tibia. Dan and the team were hopeful that injury was fairly minor and that he would be back on the bike in time to train for Round 2 but sharp-eyed observers will have noticed that he is still using a leg brace and crutches.

Darren Roberts, Harris &Ross’s Injury Management Specialist said “Dan is recovering extremely well and making huge progress, however the injury turned out to be quite complex.  Dan has to follow a strict regime of only loading his leg by certain percentages each week following X-rays and reviews by the surgeon.  He has another review with the surgeon next week and we hope to have him 100% weight bearing soon, which means he can start the return to sport phase of his rehab."

GT Factory Racing will be represented in Round 2 of the Enduro World Series by 2013’s Overall Junior Champion Martin Maes, the team are excited to see how Martin will perform following his amazing result in the General Classification of Round 1 EWS Nevados de Chillan where he came 4th overall with three out of six stage wins.

Dan Atherton said “Obviously I’m gutted to miss the first Enduro World series to be raced on home soil but injury is always going to be part of our sport and I’m well on the way to recovery. Thanks to the brilliant team at Atherton Racing and Harris & Ross who have supported me all the way.

Watch out for our Martin Maes this weekend he’s absolutely on fire – and heal up soon Jerome Clementz, hope that shoulder recovers enough to let you ride”
