At round 13 of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross series in Salt Lake City, Monster Energy / Pro Circuit / Kawasaki’s Garrett Marchbanks went down hard. The main event was red-flagged and Garrett was carried off the track with a medical backboard in what was a scary moment a week ago. Today, the team put out an update on Garrett’s condition, and, while not great, it does sound like the Daytona SX 250SX main event winner is expected to make a full recovery.
“After crashing at Round 13, the Pro Circuit rider Garrett Marchbanks and the team have decided to concentrate on his recovery process and forgo the remainder of the supercross season,” the team said. “Marchbanks suffered a bruised lung and other internal injuries. The Utah native is looking ahead to a full recovery and the start of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship.”
We wish Garrett well in his recovery and hope to see him back on the line for the July 18 debut of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship in Indiana. MotoXAddicts will bring you more updates as we get them from the team in the future.
