Today Rockstar/Husqvarana’s Christophe Pourcel released a statement from his @CP_377 Instagram account saying that he will skip the 2015 USGP at Glen Helen this weekend due to nagging injuries he received towards the end of the 2015 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. You can read what Christophe had to say and view his Instagram post below.

Unfortunately, I won’t be racing the @mxgp this weekend. After my crash in Unadilla, I had a lot of pain in my ribs for the last two races. After the season I got a CT that showed I had cracked my rib. We decided to take the time and let it heal, and I look forward to being ready for @monsterenergycup.
