I didn’t race at Zolder. It was a difficult decision to make, but I know in my heart we made the right decision. As an athlete it’s hard to describe the disappointment because lots of feelings are involved and you are always prepared to give your absolutely everything to compete.
But as a mother I know that health comes first. My situation after Hockenheim has been tricky because an old injury was activated by the shunt. The medical experts at @hintsaperformance made their decision together with the @wseriesracing that it’s better for me to extend the time for recovery. It’s always tricky with injuries and it’s hard to define whereabouts on the recovery curve you actually are. And if the injury is active, there’s way too many risks. In my case even a little new shunt would have been crucial. So better to recover over one race than possibly hang the helmet for a really long time or the rest of my life.
Now it’s all about recovery and I’m so lucky and privileged to have the best team of experts to help me. Next time I’ll be ready to show my full potential up to chequered flag! Thanks to all of you who are supporting me on this journey and have sent messages.
We will end up winning races, don’t worry. And let’s block the title next year !
