KENNI Larsen is set for a period of inactivity after breaking an arm in Poland on Sunday.

KENNI Larsen is set for a period of inactivity after breaking an arm in Poland on Sunday.

The Dane crashed whilst riding for Lodz in their win at Lublin and after being taken to hospital for further examination the break was revealed.

Larsen has also suffered a dislocated wrist and concussion but it is not known at this stage how long he’ll be out of action.

Either way it’s a big blow to club and rider and is the second injury the Readypower Panthers have suffered in the past seven days.

Linus Sundstrom picked up a broken scaphoid in an accident whilst competing in the Czestochowa v Gorzow Extraleague match last Monday, although the Swede hopes to be back by the end of this month or early August.

Both riders will miss Saturday’s visit to Eastbourne but Panthers bosses will now consider their options and possibly look to make a temporary replacement to cover the injuries.

Co-promoter Trevor Swales said: “It’s a blow to lose Kenni as he had been riding so well for us both home and away.

“Coping with one missing rider is bad enough but with two out we are going to have to look at bringing someone in.

“We’re going to be very busy over the next few days or so looking for someone suitable to cover these injuries.”
