The injury that Liam Everts sustained on his shoulder on Saturday is still worse than expected. An MRI on Sunday revealed a fracture in the back of his shoulder blade.

Everts (17) crashed on Saturday morning during the time practice of the EMX250 in Mantova. Not a heavy fall, but right on his shoulder. De Lummen couldn’t lift his arm anymore and had to give up for the two heats later in the day. Still, Liam sounded positive on Saturday night. “No fractures have been discovered. I will therefore do everything I can to be able to participate in the last EMX250 race on Tuesday.”

One day later, the optimism gave way to disappointment. “During an extra examination, it turned out that I did sustain a fracture in the shoulder”, the Lummenaar sighs. “It’s a shame that the season has to end like this. On the other hand, I am glad that we have already discovered the fracture.”

Everts will now return to Belgium, where he will visit doctor Claes in Herentals to see whether or not surgery is necessary. The test work with his new team Diga Procross – which was planned for the next ten days – will therefore have to be postponed. “Unfortunate, of course, but again not the biggest problem,” said Liam. “Getting that shoulder back in order as quickly as possible is now the first task.”

For Everts, the season came to an end three days earlier than expected. His last season at European level. In 2022, the son of ten-time world champion Stefan will make the switch to the MX2 world championship. (jüs)
