“That’s the last thing anybody wants! I was looking forward to two races in the Arena Cross Series in England next month. The London race was going to be a real highlight for me.
We had planned a one-month break in March anyway, so this could have come at a worse time. The SX season is drawing to a close so now I need to focus on my school work, which is a necessary but not so attractive alternative!”
