Arnaud Tonus to miss the MX of Nations

The 2013 year will be definitively a season to forget for the likeable Swiss rider, who attended only the Grand Prix of Great Britain and Lierop this season and will not be able to defend the Swiss colours at the Motocross of Nations in Germany in two weeks time.

The positive news is that Arnaud doesn’t suffers from any new injury, but he has to follow his body which didn’t reacted so well to the hard training program that the CLS Kawasaki rider followed to prepare his come back.

Jean Jacques Luisetti - team owner: "We all know the qualities of Arnaud, and when his doctor gave him the permission to go training again he never really stopped working to be fit as soon as possible. Between the GP’s of Great Britain and Lierop he spent two weeks on sandy tracks, training every day, and after two strong races on the most demanding track he feels some pain in his leg that he broke one year ago at the Nations. He visited again the doctors, and they saw that this leg is sore as he over trained, We don’t want to take any risks as next season is too important for Arnaud and of course for the team and our partners, so we ask him to stay quiet during four weeks to recover. For sure it’s not the best way to end the season as the Nations is a great event, but we want Arnaud to recover; he had a very tough year, but he knows that everyone in the team is behind him and just want to see him back at his best next season.”

Tommy Searle and Alessandro Lupino will represent team CLS Monster Energy Kawasaki Pro Circuit at the Motocross of Nations, who will take place on September 28th and 29th in Teutschenthal, Germany.
