Serco Yamaha Metal Mulisha Racing’s Kirk Gibbs has been released from hospital following his scary MX2 moto three incident at Coolum’s final round of the Monster Energy MX Nationals on Sunday.
Gibbs went down heavily in the final moto and was immediately rushed to Nambour Hospital after being attended to by Suzuki RACESAFE.
Early signs weren’t good, but the picture was brighter later that afternoon when reports filtered back to the track that Gibbs looked to be cleared of any serious injury.
He will undergo a further serious of scans on his head and body this week to reveal the true extent of his injuries.
“I can remember everything up to the jump before I crashed and then nothing until I came around in the RACESAFE truck,” Gibbs explained.
“I spent two nights in hospital under observation and now have just finished getting some scans revealing a broken wrist, collarbone and a few other minor issues.
“I feel pretty beat up at the moment and really sore all over but it could have been a lot worse of it weren’t for the RACESAFE team. I can’t thank Simon [Maas] and his team enough, they probably saved my life!”
Gibbs will more about his immediate future later this week depending on the result of scans.
The Serco Yamaha Metal Mulisha Racing Team’s next commitment is the Australia Supercross Championship starting in October.
