Yesterday, five weeks after the crash in the EMX125 Grand Prix of Italia, Liam got examined by his doctors. Unfortunately there was bad news for him to hear. After x-rays and removing the cast they noticed that the radius is healed but this in such a way that it obstructs the movement of the wrist. Because of the young age of Liam and the hopefully bright future ahead of us, a surgery is the smartest choice to make. Nevertheless this unexpected hump in the recovery and to 2021 leaves a bitter taste in our mouths.
Liam is scheduled to have his surgery this upcoming Monday. We will keep you updated on social media, website and newsletters.

On Monday, Liam met doctor m.d. Claes to get his injuries examined, sustained past Saturday at the EMX125 race in Faenza. Besides the already known injuries, the screening didn’t show any other injuries.
On the other hand, we got good news about the other injuries. At second glance the wrist wasn’t dislocated. However Liam broke his right radius, but this does not need any surgery. Liam wears a cast at the moment and his arm will need approximal 6 weeks’ to heal. Meaning that Liam will be unable to contest the Grand Prix in Lommel.

In the beautiful scenery of Faenza, all young and promising riders came together to race the second round of the EMX125 championship. The leader in this championship was, after his dominating win in Matterley Basin, no one else then Liam Everts. In timed qualifying, Liam showed promising speed, putting a fifth time on the clocks. In the first moto the Yoko-rider started in the top 5 in the first heat. A good start makes life always a bit easier wasn’t it that this good start went through the drain, Liam lost the front of the bike on one of the downhills. Quickly the youngster picked himself up, rejoining the race in twelfth position. On a mission to get as much points...
