Rob Hartog has made returning to the FIM Endurance World Championship for the 24H SPA EWC Motos next month his “goal”.
The Dutchman suffered a broken left shoulder and cervical vertebra during a testing crash days before the 24 Heures Motos last month and was forced to withdraw from the Le Mans-based contest as a result.
“During a test in Most I still had too much pain in my shoulder blade, so we had to stop the test early,” said the Pitlane Endurance EWC rider. “Too bad and of course I'm really bummed. It just needs some more recovery time and rest. I will be in Oschersleben this weekend to support Bastien [Mackels], Melvin [van der Voort] and Team SWPN [in the IDM championship]. The next chance to race is during the 24H SPA EWC Motos. We'll see how the recovery goes, but that's my goal for now to work towards that.”
The 24H SPA EWC Motos takes place from 16-18 June at the legendary Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium.
