British talent, Shanaze Reade out of action

Shoulder injury puts Reade out for World MTB Championship


Two-time World BMX Champion and former World Track Team Sprint Champion, Shanaze Reade is out of action for four months following an injury to her right shoulder sustained recently in training.

Shanaze picked up the injury on 16 May when she fell off her bike after riding over a loose stone on the track and landing on the same shoulder she injured two years ago.

Medical scans showed that the recent fall exacerbated an old injury and surgeons have recommended a keyhole procedure to fully identify and fix the problem. 

As a result, Shanaze will be unable to defend her World Champion title in Australia in July, which she has held for two years. The injury will also prevent her from competing in the forthcoming UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, held at Fort William in Scotland on 6-7 June, an event which would have meant Shanaze had competed at world-class standard in three disciplines BMX, Track and Mountain Bike.

Shanaze Reade commented: Im very disappointed that I cant race at the BMX Worlds this year. I really wanted to get out there and defend my title. Im also disappointed that I cant make my mountain bike debut in the 4-cross at the World Cup. My focus now is on recovery and getting back into training as soon as I can, so I can begin my preparations for London 2012.
