Jimmy Decotis Fractures Two Vertebra In 2018 Daytona Supercross Crash
Jimmy Decotis has released an update on his condition following a crash in the early portion of the 250 Main Event at the 2018 Daytona Supercross. In a post on Instagram, the AutoTrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing rider stated that he crashed in the long, fast lane just before the finish line, which fractured the L2 and L3 vertebra in his back (lumbar, lower back) and a few ribs. He was taken to a nearby hospital for a full evaluation, and luckily, there was no damage to the spinal cord.
