It looks like Chris Birch’s attempt at racing the Red Bull Romaniacs on a KTM Adventure bike may be over before it’s even begun having broken his hand.

In Sibiu, Romania, for the Red Bull Romaniacs which starts today, Tuesday July 25, Birch was attempting to race the event in Iron Class on a KTM Adventure bike.

But a prearranged photoshoot has not gone to plan, with a crash resulting in a broken bone in his hand.

Birch posted this comment on social media

“So today's test ride on the beautiful #redbullromaniacs ktm did not go well. After only about 200m of riding up a track to find a photo spot I didn't see a rock and crashed hard and have broken a bone in my hand. 

“It's very hard not to be angry at myself. However you can see what shape the cast is in, with the right pills this might not be over. I honestly can't remember the last time I crashed and now this.”

Birch is made of tough stuff and if anyone can find a way to ride, then it’s going to be him. Fingers crossed.
