Thanks to all and each one of you for the many messages and positive thoughts. Very appreciated! Special thanks to Brussels Stephex Master and its incredible medical team as well as the whole staff at UZ Brussels hospital.
Thanks also to all my sponsors and fans for standing on my side in a such hard moment of my career. Congrats Stephan Conter for putting together a great show. Well done!
I will be back soon doing what I love the most, riding and jumping.”
