After their latest appearance in St. Jean d’Angely, the FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship riders are back to action in Germany for the penultimate round of the series. The latest news is that series leader Katherine Prumm of Yamaha Van Beers will sit out of this weekend’s German round as she broke her left collarbone; the two time World Cup winner’s 2008 season started with a broken right ACL but Prumm could ride through the pain to collect the red plate at round three in St. Jean.
