Ben Grabham injury update following Condo 750

3 years ago

HSE Motorex KTM team rider Ben Grabham is currently recovering in Sydney’s Westmead Hospital after sustaining a series of injuries in an incident while leading the Condo 750 over the Easter long weekend.

In an attempt to wrest victory in the historic race at Condobolin the desert racing legend crashed after making contact at approximately 160km/h with a pack of kangaroos crossing the course.

Bathurst-based Grabham was airlifted to hospital in Orange before being flown to Westmead, where he’s expected to remain until next week when it’s forecast he’ll be permitted to return home.

Grabham suffered fractured vertebrae in the T4-T9 region, as well as fractures to his right radius and collarbone. Surgery in Westmead has been successfully carried out on his arm and collarbone, the process of his rehabilitation closely monitored by team trainer Tim Cole.

It is anticipated that Grabham will make a full recovery from his injuries, however a minimum of three months will be spent on the sidelines, forcing him out of his Finke Desert Race title defence in the Northern Territory on 9-11 June.

Grabham will also miss the upcoming KTM-sponsored Hattah Desert Race, which is slated for Mildura in Victoria on 7-9 July. His return date is still yet to be determined, depending on his recovery rate.

KTM Australia and the HSE Motorex KTM team extend their very best well wishes to Ben for a speedy recovery and look forward to his return when he regains fitness.
