Forkner adds depth in SLC.

Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki have confirmed that Austin Forkner will return from injury at the fifteenth round of Monster Energy Supercross this weekend. A small injury to his hip kept him out of Seattle, the previous round, but that should not hinder him in Salt Lake City on Saturday.

 “I was so bummed to have waited all break and then right before Seattle had a little get off that kept me off the bike," said Forkner. “I’m really happy to be back and would love to be on the podium this weekend."

Forkner still sits sixth in the 250SX West standings, despite the fact that he has skipped a round. He acquired a career-best finish of second at Arlington, which was the last race that he contested.
