After dominating the opening moto of the 2018 Minneapolis Supercross “Triple Crown”, Austin Forkner would go down five times in the next two motos. Unfortunately, crash number five ended his night and the rest of his SX season. “Each pic pretty much describes how my mains went last night,” Austin said from his @AustinForkner Instagram. “Pretty bummed about my riding in the second and third mains, just think I was being impatient in the second one which caused more mistakes and then ended the night in that third one. Pretty sure just a broken collarbone from what I’ve been told as of right now which is pretty much what I felt as soon as I crashed. It’s not from a lack of effort just doesn’t go ur way sometimes, but I guess I’ll see u guys in outdoors.”

The sophomore pro can take some consolation in the fact that he was right in the thick of the Championship fight, and you can be sure he will come back next year on a mission to finish the job. We wish the #35 a speedy recovery and hope to see him at Hangtown. Check out video of his crash below.
