Current Penrite ProMX MX1 red plate-holder Kyle Webster will undergo surgery next week after a bike malfunction caused him to fall and break his left foot and right ankle.

The incident occurred while training this week, and marks a devasting blow for the Honda Racing MX1 graduate after a successful round two of ProMX at Mackay.

“Unfortunately I had a bike malfunction on an up ramp during the week, resulting in me jumping off and landing into the backside of the down ramp,” Webster explained.

“I have broken my left foot and right ankle and am booked in for surgery next week to get fixed up and start my recovery. To say I’m devastated is an understatement but I know I’ll be back and ready to get after it again!”

After a challenging opening round at Wonthaggi, Webster bounced back to take control of the red plate at Gum Valley and has a six-point advantage in the MX1 standings.

No set indication has been given as to how long Webster will be sidelined, with round three of 2022 ProMX taking place at Wodonga, Victoria on 1 May.
