The Troy Lee Designs / KTM has lost both their 250SX East riders, Jordon Smith and Mitchell Falk, to injuries for this weekend’s Daytona SX. “East Coast riders Jordon Smith and Mitchell Falk will, unfortunately, be sitting out this weekend for Supercross,” the TLD team announced on Instagram. “After dealing with a wrist Injury the past two weeks Jordon is going to take time off to heal properly and come back out fighting at 100%. Mitchell Falk is back on the mend after sitting out the past few weeks and is looking to make his return in Indianapolis!.”

After TLD announced that both Jordon and Mitchell would be out for Daytona, they sent out another post that hinted about their 250SX West rider Shane McElrath possibly lining up for Daytona in the 450 class aboard his 250F. The TLD team announced on Instagram: “What do you guys think? Should we have Shane McElrath line up this weekend in Daytona on his KTM 250 SX-F in the 450 class?”

We have not heard any confirmation on McElrath lining up for Daytona, but the TLD team is not big on trolling the internet so we suspect it will likely happen. Stay tuned for more on this one.
