Team HRC rookie Mitch Evans has undergone a successful operation on the shoulder that he injured at Valkenswaard, Netherlands, at round two of MXGP.

Evans had surgery in Brisbane for an arthroscopic anterior stabilisation, which went to plan and now enables him to begin his recovery.

“I’m glad to have had the surgery and I can now get home and begin my recovery,” Evans said. “It’s a strange situation with the season and all these postponed races, but my aim is to get my shoulder feeling 100 percent and to get back riding and feeling comfortable on the bike again.”

At the moment, the next scheduled event is in Russia on 6 June in just over three months time, but with the nature of the current COVID-19 pandemic causing uncertainty, there is no real timeline for the Australian’s next outing.
