Australian Jaryd McNeil was not injured in the crash, but he was stunned.

According to the Columbian Court Reporter, “A former volunteer at Washougal Motocross Park is suing the racetrack and its affiliates after being critically injured when a rider lost control of his bike, left the track and struck him in July 2014. Bruce Barnes, 52, of Vancouver filed the suit July 5 in Clark County Superior Court against the park; American Motocross Association; Lucas Oil Products; National Promoters Group; John Ayers, director of operations for the National Promoters Group; MX Sports Pro Racing; the rider, Jarryd McNeil; and John and Jane Doe. He is being represented by Vancouver attorney Josephine Townsend.”

“In his suit, Bruce Barnes alleges that the motocross park and the other named defendants failed to warn him and other people of the dangerous conditions of the track; protect him from known danger; provide reasonable safeguards to prevent his injuries; provide trained personnel to safely design, operate and manage the track; provide protection to Barnes and other guests; properly train and supervise Barnes; furnish him a safe place to work; promote safety practice rules to sign; provide safe equipment; enforce proper federal and state industrial safety standards; and guard, warn and protect Barnes from known hazards. It also alleges that the track negligently placed him in a position in which he could be harmed, violated safety regulations and the Washington Industrial Safety and Health Act, had a defective track design, and caused and supervised an unsafe work environment.”

“The suit states that McNeil is liable for failing to exercise ordinary care while operating his bike, carelessly and negligently driving, failing to keep his bike on the track, failing to keep a proper lookout while operating his bike and failing to maintain his bike in good working order.”

BROC TICKLE TO MISS REMAINDER OF AMA NATIONALS

BROCTICKLEGHBroc Tickle’s season is over.

Following an MRI this week that revealed a posterior labral tear, a Hills-Sachs lesion, a type 1-2 superior labrum anterior to posterior tear, and a posterior shoulder dislocation. RCH/Yoshimura Suzuki’s Broc Tickle has been ruled out for the remainder of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross, the team announced today. The injury will not require surgery, but the recovery time is six-to-eight weeks. Tickle initially sustained the injury in the second practice at RedBud last weekend. He was able to finish both motos and finished 18-17 for 17th overall on the day. Team manager Kyle Bentley praised Tickle for his toughness at RedBud.

“It’s a tough situation and ended up being more damage to Broc’s shoulder than what anyone originally thought. It really speaks volumes about how tough Broc is, the way he gutted it out last weekend. It’s a shame because he was having a really solid season, but we all know that injuries are part of the sport and everyone deals with it from time to time.”
