Davi Millsaps – After an impressive first moto showing at Hangtown, Millsaps dislocated his elbow in the second moto. He was able to get it back in and finish out the race, salvaging a 14th place finish. Although the injury is painful, Davi confirmed through Twitter that he will tough it out in Texas next weekend.
Justin Bogle – The GEICO Honda rider took a nasty crash in practice at Hangtown. It was evident he was hurting in moto one when the best he could finish was 21st. The second moto went better for Justin as he scored a 7th—going 21-7 for 15th overall. After the race, Bogle tweeted that he is nursing an injury he sustained during the Supercross season.
Ryan Sipes – Ryan is currently dealing with a hand injury he sustained during a weird collision with Jason Anderson during the parade lap at the Las Vegas Supercross. Ryan went 25-15 for 18th overall at Hangtown and is expected to be at Freestone.
Marvin Musquin – Marvin injured his hand at the Salt Lake City Supercross. He had a plate and screws installed in his hand after the Las Vegas Supercross. Marvin is riding through the pain and went 5-14 for 9th overall at the Hangtown opener.
Gareth Swanepoel – Gareth had surgery on his right knee during the Supercross season. He is back racing but is not at 100%. Swanny fought through Hangtown, going 12-15 for 14th overall.
New To The List
Tyla Rattray – After being called up to the Factory Kawasaki tent to fill in for the injured Ryan Villopoto, Tyla was ready to show what he could do in the 450 class. Unfortunately, on the second lap of the first moto, we hear that Tyla took a rock to the hand and broke it. There is no word yet on if Tyla will be in Texas or how long he will be out.
Malcolm Stewart – Malcolm was involved in a pileup during the opening laps of the second moto. He didn’t finish the second moto, and as of this time, there is no word on his injuries.
Darryn Durham – Darryn injured his shoulder testing for the motocross season a few weeks back. There is no set date for his return, but we do not expect it will be much longer.
Austin Stroupe – Austin crashed at the Dallas SX and was forced to have surgery on his collarbone. No date is set on his return, but it could be any round.
Christian Craig – Christian had surgery on his wrist during the Supercross series. He has been riding and plans to return at RedBud.
Gannon Audette – Gannon sustained a broken wrist while preparing for the Supercross season. There is no date set for his return, but he expected to be back any round now.
Jarred Browne – Jarred is dealing with a pinched nerve in his elbow. He is expected to return in the later part of the National series.
Matt Moss – Matt had a minor surgery after the Las Vegas Supercross. In a tweet from 5/20/12, he exclaimed that he will be back on the bike soon. He is expected to return to racing shortly.
Cole Seely – Cole sustained kidney and liver injuries at the Salt Lake City Supercross. He is expected to return towards the end of the 2012 series.
Out For Season
Ryan Hughes – Coming out of retirement, Ryno had a rough day at Hangtown. After qualifying 19th, the thirty-nine year old hit the ground a few times in moto one and decided to call it a day. He went on Twitter later to say that he tweaked his left wrist. It sounds like this is it for Ryan’s comeback, at least on a Yamaha.
Dean Wilson – After suffering a shoulder injury at the Seattle Supercross, Wilson wanted to give the outdoors his best shot. Deano was anxious to rock the #1 and try to defend his 2011 250 AMA Motocross Championship. He made it ten laps into the first moto before his shoulder dislocated. It sounds like Wilson will be having surgery to repair his shoulder and may not return for the remainder of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.
Check out this pit interview with Dean just moments after he pulled out of moto one at Hangtown.
Ryan Villopoto – Ryan, after clinching his second straight Supercross Championship, tore his ACL at the Seattle Supercross. The multi-time champion decided to forgo the defense of his 2011 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross 450 Championship to repair his ACL and may make his return as early as the Monster Energy Cup in October.
Ryan Morais – Ryan Morais suffered multiple injuries including a broken jaw, collapsed lung, fractured vertebrae and broke ribs at the Los Angeles Supercross. There is no word on his return to racing.
Chad Reed – Reed suffered several injuries at the Dallas Supercross including two broken ribs, a broken spinous T6, a torn ACL and a fractured tib fib, so there is no telling which injury put Chad on ice for the 2012 season. Chad has announced that he will return to the line for Anaheim 1 in 2013.
Jimmy Decotis – Jimmy tore his ACL practicing. It is unlikely we will see him before 2012 is over.
Trey Canard – Trey suffered a broken back at the Los Angeles Supercross. His spinal injuries were serious, but he is expected to have full recovery. We expect to see the Oklahoman on the line for Anaheim 1 in 2013.
