Joonas Kylmakorpi

Eastbourne Eagles number one Joonas Kylmakorpi will be on the sidelines for at least three weeks.

The Finnish rider cracked his collarbone and damaged his shoulder socket in the 59-31 defeat at King's Lynn on Wednesday.

The reigning Long-Track world champion, 32, was taken to hospital for an MRI scan after crashing in the first heat.

Eagles team manager Trevor Geer said: "There was some bunching in the first corner and Joonas came off worst."

Kylmakorpi could miss up to eight Elite League meetings in April.
