2018 San Diego Supercross Crash Results In Broken Humerus For Justin Bogle
We have learned more about the crash that Justin Bogle suffered in the 450 Heat Race at the 2018 San Diego Supercross. While near the front of the pack on the opening lap, the AutoTrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing rider did not hit the first large triple in the track layout and rolled over the landing of the jump just as Ben Lamay, who did jump the triple, started his descent. Lamay’s tire hit the side of Bogle’s helmet, evident in tire marks that team manager Jeremy Albrecht said were on the side of the shell, and then hit Bogle’s body. The two went off of the track and into a nearby wall, with Bogle getting the worst of the impact, and the level of the care required from the Alpinestars Mobile Medical Unit staff resulted in a red flag.
In talking with Albrecht, Bogle suffered a break to the humerus/upper arm in the crash, and that was the most important injury that they addressed. Bogle reportedly did not suffer a concussion in the crash, a relief considering that back-to-back concussions were the reason he missed the start of the year.
Bogle will undergo a further evaluation this week to determine the extent of the damage and a timeframe for recovery.
