The hard charging Aussie was riding with a broken left kneecap sustained from a heavy crash in Poland the previous weekend. Crump had his left knee heavily strapped for the event.

“I was in a fair amount of pain most of the night but my leg stood up to it pretty well,” said Crump. “The track was not the best for making passing moves and I was too slow out of the start. I did manage to collect 11 more points on the way and close the gap a little bit more on three of the four riders who are leading me. Overall I am happy with my results.”

Crump is scheduled for knee surgery at a British hospital this week. “The doctors said with an extensive physiotherapy program, I should be back for the next Grand Prix in two weeks,” he said. “Let’s keep our fingers crossed.”

Crump uses K&N Engineering products. “I may have won the World Championship last year, but that does not mean I will be taking it easy,” said Crump. I use K&N Filters because they are the best and want to continue our association with K&N as long as I am racing.”
