Charlie Mullins News

The current points leader in both the GNCC and the AMA National Enduro series – FMF/KTM’s Charlie Mullins – will be sidelined for up to 10 weeks.

The North Carolina native injured his wrist while practicing Tuesday near his home. Mullins underwent surgery on Thursday, and surgeons inserted a pin in his dislocated right wrist. During the wreck, Mullins’ ligaments were also damaged.

KTM reports Mullins will remain in a cast until early August at which time he will have the pins removed. He will be released to ride shortly after that and hopes to make a return to racing in September.

“This was an unfortunate accident for Charlie who has been on top of his game this year,” stated Factory FMF/KTM Team Manager Antti Kallonen. “We will do everything to help him get back up to speed once he is healed and continue to support him to the best of our ability through his recovery process.”
