We are eight rounds into the Monster Energy Supercross season and up until Arlington, the 450SX class injuries were quite light with only losing Marvin Musquin and Joey Savatgy during the preseason and Chris Blose and Justin Bogle during the early rounds. One round later and we’ve now lost Adam Cianciarulo, Broc Tickle and we probably should have lost Cooper Webb. On top of that, today, we got word that Zach Osborne had a big practice crash that resulted in some major injuries. Right now, they have only officially announced that Zach will miss this weekend in Atlanta, but it looks like a minimum of 3-4 weeks for the #16.
Supercross is a brutal sport at times and there’s just no taking away from that fact. We will keep you up to date and Zach and all the other 450 riders mentioned when we get more news. Check out Zach’s injury report below.
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Zach Osborne was injured during a practice crash in Florida this week following Round 8 of the 2020 AMA Supercross World Championship Series. Osborne suffered a broken rib, two bruised lungs, and a sprained wrist. His return to racing is yet to be determined as he assesses the proper recovery time for his injuries.
“I’m really gutted with the timing of this incident but very grateful that my injuries were minor considering the hit that I took,” Osborne said. “It’s been a very tough start to the season for me and my team has been so awesome in picking me back up as they always do. This is just a bump in the road and I will be back as soon as I’m back to 100% and can reach my full potential again.”
Round 9 of the 2020 AMA Supercross World Championship Series will take place this Saturday, February 29 in Atlanta, Georgia where Osborne’s Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing teammates will line up inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
