Bike It DRT Kawasaki’s Darian Sanayei underwent successful surgery this week in California and starts the rehabilitation process to return to his proven speed in the FIM World MX2 motocross series.
Injured during a round of the British national series in early April, Darian Sanayei took several weeks off to try to recover from his knee injury before returning to racing at the British Grand Prix two weeks ago. After posting some very fast laps during the practice sessions the young American, who just turned 22 this week, wasn’t able to maintain the speed over the race distance and decided to go for surgery as this entails a long rehabilitation process after a knee surgery. He went back to the United States to have surgery this Wednesday, and was pleased with the result. “The surgery went well; they did everything they needed to and now I’m in a hotel resting for a few days. Hopefully I will soon be able to to start getting around and doing physio,” said Darian who is now focusing on next season. Having scored his first MX2 race podium this year in Argentina and Spain Darian knows that he can race for GP podiums in the near future. “It’s nice to know now that the surgery is done and I can start focusing on being healthy for next season. I’d like to thanks Kawasaki and the entire team for their support,” he added. The Kawasaki family wish him a good recovery and expect to see him at the forefront of racing again next season.
