Honda Racing’s Kyle Webster continues to recover from a training crash post round two of the 2022 Penrite ProMX Championship at Mackay, the number 96 highlighting his current condition with his next appointment being in June for further assessment.

Webster broke his left foot and right ankle in the fall, and underwent surgery on 21 April, requiring two screws and a bone graft on his navicular.

“Everything feels really good, but I can’t put any pressure on it (left foot),” Webster explained to “I guess on the 20th of June I’ll find out a bit more about it, and be able to start putting some pressure on it moving forward from there.

“From the surgery, my goal was to try and get the last couple of rounds in (of ProMX), I just have to make sure the recovery is all going well when I get my next appointment.

“It’s hard to know what is happening because it is such a long gap between appointments, but from how it feels, how much movement I have and all of that stuff, I think I’m going in the right direction.”

The last two rounds of 2022 ProMX take place on 14 August at QLD Moto Park, and Coolum on 20-21 August. As Webster alluded to, he will have a better idea of the timeframe of when he can expect to commence riding a motorcycle again after the 20 June appointment.
