Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki has confirmed that Joey Savatgy will join teammates Justin Hill and Adam Cianciarulo at the 2017 MXGP of USA this weekend. Savatgy missed the final two rounds of the 2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship due to a foot injury first sustained at the 2017 Unadilla MX and then worsened a week later at the 2017 Budds Creek MX. With the brief time off, Savatgy’s foot has healed just enough that he and the team are confident he can line up for the one Amercian round of the 2017 Monster Energy FIM Motocross World Championship in the MX2 division.
A handful of US-based riders are slated to contend this weekend’s race against the international field. You can browse through full entry lists for the two classes here.
