Heading into the first-ever MotoFiteKlub event that took place on Tuesday afternoon, Ivan Tedesco was one of the 10 riders slated to compete in the inaugural event. When the racing begun, though, the man they call “Hot Sauce” was nowhere to be found. There was quite a bit of speculation because IT was at the event and even participated in the pre-race rider round table event the night before—even we speculated that Ivan maybe had a little too much fun the night before—but it turns out Ivan had a serious issue and was hospitalized.

Today, Ivan sent out an update and let everyone know he was not able to race the event because he suffered a seizure. “I want to let everyone know what happened to me this week and why I did not race MFK [motofiteklub],” Ivan said from his social media accounts. “First of all, I would like to thank the medical staff at St. Elizabeth Boardman Hospital in Ohio for attending to me the last couple of days. I suffered a seizure which caused me to be hospitalized. The doctors think it was due to severe dehydration, which lead to complications such as having a seizure. This can happen because your blood volume is too low. The doctors ran many test to include, EEG, EKG, and blood tests which all came out normal. Thankfully, I am fine and I really appreciate all the help and many prayers on my behalf.”

We are bummed to hear this happened to IT but we am very happy it was not worse. We can only hope his doctors get this all figured out and we can look forward to seeing Hot Sauce at the next installment of MFK.
