Kay de Wolf of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing was not able to line up for the final round of the EMX250 European Championship series at Lommel in Belgium. De Wolf had a crash after colliding with another rider during qualifying, and was unable to continue due to injury.
After his strong showing on Saturday, De Wolf was fully motivated to round out his European Championship career on a high note. He was in the middle of a quick qualifying lap when he collided with another rider after a jump. He was first examined at the on-track medical unit, and then transported to hospital, where a broken nose and concussion were diagnosed.
De Wolf was not able to defent his third place in the championship standings, and unfortunately was demoted to fourth in the final standings. He will take some enforced rest, and then prepare himself fully for the 2021 season.
