Penrite Honda’s Cody Cooper will have examinations on his knee following yesterday’s fourth of the Monster Energy MX Nationals in South Australia.

Cooper starred on his way to second in moto one during his best showing of 2014, however he recorded a DNF in moto two when a collision with Jake Moss saw him sustain a knee injury.

“I started tight in the first race then settled in,” Cooper explained. “I found my rhythm and worked my way past Matt Moss and into second.

“In the second moto I came together with Jake Moss and hurt my knee in the process. To be honest I didn’t even see him. We don’t know the extent of the damage yet – I will see a specialist early next week.”

The injury is Cooper’s second of the season after suffering facial injuries at Broadford’s season-opening round in practice. He returned to action at Wonthaggi’s third round.
