Just weeks after he claimed the 450SX Championship, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jason Anderson sustained an injury on Thursday morning while practising at Glen Helen Raceway. Two days before the Thunder Valley National in Lakewood, Colorado, Anderson took off aboard his FC 450 ROCKSTAR EDITION for a standard practice session.
While riding, Anderson collided with another rider resulting in a compound fracture to his right foot which required surgery. The expected recovery time is four to six weeks. Without complications, he is looking to return to the 2018 AMA Pro Motocross Championship at the Unadilla National on August 11, 2018.
Husqvarna Motorcycles and the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team wish Jason a speedy recovery and hope to see him back on the bike to finish out the end of the season.
