Doug DeHaan Crashes Hard in Round Five - 125cc East is Next

Doug DeHaan coming off his best finish of the year in the 2001 Canadian Nationals was pumped entering the Grunthal, MB race where he won the overall in 1999 and finished third in 2000.  Unfortunately this year’s race didn’t turn out as he wished.

 

In moto one Doug said, “I was fourth or fifth on the outside of the first turn.  I was flat tracking it when I slid out or caught a lip and went down.  I landed on the bike and initially was ok.  Things went from bad to worse as Marco Dube, on the big 4 stroke slammed into my back, which hurt quite a bit.   This in turn caused my race to be pushed towards the handlebars and my teeth hit the handlebars and broke two teeth and pushed another one into my gums.  My full-face helmet was pushed up during the crash exposing my face.  The last part of this crash, which made it seem gorier, was that I received a good size cut under my chin, which was bleeding when I got up.  Obviously my day was done.”

 

“I’m back home and getting things straightened out.  The swelling has begun to go down in my face and back.  I hope to be ready in two weeks for the Ulverton race in Quebec.”

 

“Based on poor results and luck I’ve had in the first half of the 250cc season I think I will be riding the 125 East coast series along with the 250cc for the remainder of the season.

 

Thanks for visiting my web site and for the e-mails.”
