The deal of the day on 24MX.

Shaun Simpson was arguably the most pleasant surprise at the 2019 Hawkstone International, as it was quite clear that he had gelled with the RFX KTM in the winter months. A positive day turned sour, however, when a crash in the second moto left him with a dislocated shoulder. It seems that the injury is not as serious as it sounds though and, according to a statement on his website, it seems as though Simpson expects to be back in action this weekend.

"The day didn't finish as planned but there were plenty of positive points: There was a real buzz about the team, I felt comfortable on the bike and my starts were on-point. It must have been 6-10 minutes before my shoulder clicked back in and I know it will be a bit tender tomorrow and the day after but it is something I'm used to dealing with and I fully expect to be racing next weekend at LaCapelle Marival."

The LaCapelle Marival event, run in France, is the final pre-season international in Europe. The first round of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship will take place in Argentina on the following weekend.
