Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson underwent surgery on Thursday morning to remove hardware that was originally used to repair a broken arm that he sustained during a 2019 practice crash, the team announced. Anderson is expected to miss the new few rounds, per the team.
Anderson pulled out of the first moto early at round 3 at Ironman due to extreme discomfort in his arm. After further evaluation by the Alpinestars Mobile Medical Unit, the X-ray results discovered that a plate and screws in his forearm had backed off the bone and surgery was immediately scheduled.
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Stephen Westfall: “Jason is a tough rider so when his hand and arm started to lose feeling during the first moto at Ironman, he made the smart decision to pull off and get it looked at. It’s unfortunate that he will be out for the next few rounds but we will evaluate his healing progress and determine if he’s able to return to the Pro Motocross Championship this year.”
