The full press release is posted below…
"I was practicing at GPF, just another day training. I was skimming the whoops and my front wheel missed one of them, dipped down into the next whoop and threw me over the bars. Wasn’t too bad of a crash but I landed on my wrist just right and ended up breaking my scaphoid, non displaced. It’s a bummer but the good thing is I'm still able to keep up on my cardio and keep my legs strong. So that won’t be a problem. Doctor says I'm looking at around 2 months in a cast, but my head is still up! Don’t expect any less from me when Arlington comes around for my first SX!"
His teammate Luke Renzland and the team continue testing for the 2018 East Coast 250 SX series starting in Arlington, TX.
