Scott Wennerstrom Suffers Broken Ribs and Punctured Lung
Scott Wennerstrom is out for the season after breaking two ribs and puncturing a lung in East Rutherford. This is a devastating blow for the rider, who had high hopes for the season. The injury occurred during a practice session and will require a lengthy recovery period.
Pierce Brown Deals with Hand and Knee Injuries
Pierce Brown broke his hand during practice and subsequently will not race in any of the remaining supercross races. He also took the off-time to repair a damaged meniscus. While it’s disappointing to see him out for the remainder of the season, fans hope he will return stronger next year.
Vince Friese Suffers Achilles Injury, No Timetable for Return
There is no timetable for Vince Friese’s return after he sustained an Achilles injury. Friese is a talented rider and was off to a strong start before his injury. Fans and fellow riders alike hope to see him back on the track soon.
Several Riders Sustain Injuries, Including Kyle Greeson, Cameron McAdoo, Phil Nicoletti, Stilez Robertson, and Dylan Walsh
Several other riders have been forced to take time off due to injuries. Kyle Greeson sustained a burst fracture to his L3 vertebrae before the season and will not compete this year. Cameron McAdoo dislocated his shoulder and tore his labrum, and Phil Nicoletti dislocated his wrist in Oakland, both are out for the remainder of the supercross season. Stilez Robertson broke his leg in Glendale and Dylan Walsh crashed in Seattle and broke his tibia. Joshua Varize is also out after suffering two big crashes in East Rutherford and dealing with a concussion.
It’s always tough to see riders out due to injuries, but it’s an unfortunate reality of the sport. We wish all the injured riders a speedy and full recovery and look forward to seeing them back on the track soon.
