We just heard that Jonny Walker injured his already hurt leg again after he caught some tree trunk. Below is the statement.

Red Bull Romaniacs: “We are sorry to report that Jonny Walker will not be able to finish the race. He arrived in the service point today after riding the last 20 minutes on β€œone leg” – with his injured leg hurt again. Jonny had caught some tree trunk with his hurt leg and is on the way to the hospital now. We hope you are going to be all right Jonny and feel better soon!”

Jonny Walker: “I was riding through long grass in 3rd or 4th gear, so quite fast and I clipped my toe on a hidden tree stump which pulled my leg off the bike. It was about 20 minutes from the SP, there were a few of us riding together. When my leg ripped off the bike I fell forward and landed on my “crown jewels” which winded me and I whiskey throttled and the bike just shot off. It was like a comedy of someone who has never ridden a bike before, I Ronny Mac’ed it ! When I got up my leg was killing so I rode all the way on my left leg, which is also now painful. Hopefully it is not re-broken, I will go for an X-ray now”
