Fabien Barel (Mondraker Factory Team) out with another injury

News travels fast on the internet and Fabien Barel has indeed fractured his femur.  With Maribor first on the downhill world cup stop this year (5/16/2010), it is highly unlikely that we’ll see Fabien racing here.  He won Maribor quite convincingly last year after bouncing back from some knee issues.  We hope to see Fabien bounce back again quickly as that’s the kind of guy he is.

Cesar Rojo confirmed that Fabien did indeed have surgery the same day as well as having a pin put on the femur.  3 months is the doctors recomendation, but don’t be surprised if you see Barel back on it quicker than that.  Hope ya get better soon Fabien.  If nothing else, hopefully Freecaster can get Fabien in the booth again for some quality commentary during the races he can’t attend as he has skills behind the microphone as well.
