QMMF Racing’s Elena Rosell put up a strong battle within her group of riders at the German Grand Prix, but was forced to retire after 19 out of 29 laps when the pain in her left forearm, caused by an inflammation of either a nerve or tendon, became too much to safely control the bike.

After receiving treatment immediately she hopes to be fit for the Italian Grand Prix next weekend.

Elena Rosell “This could have been a good race for me. After the first laps, I gained a few positions and found myself in quite an exciting battle with two other riders, who I managed to keep at bay. I was feeling good on the bike and I had a lot of fun. But when the bike started to slide, I started to get a strange pain in my left forearm, like an inflammation in a nerve or one of the tendons. It got increasingly difficult to control the bike when the rear stepped out and on two occasions I was close to crashing. Eventually, I decided it was best to pull in before putting myself or others in danger. I underwent treatment in the clinic immediately and I hope to be fully fit for the next race at Mugello!”
