Zach Osborne was involved in a horrific crash at the start of the second moto yesterday and, for a moment, it seemed that he was not going to get back in the race. There was a good reason for that though, as he popped his shoulder out and obviously needed it to be put back in. Osborne did that immediately, rejoined the race and charged to twentieth for a single point.
"Today was a learning experience for me," Osborne said in a post-race statement. "I got off to a good start in the first moto and was able to hold on for a fifth. Then, I was hit in the first turn at the start of the second moto and popped my shoulder out. It took me a second to get it back in before I could get going. I managed to score one point. There are eighteen motos left and a lot of points still on the table."
After giving up a considerable amount of points at the third round of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross, Zach Osborne now runs fourth in the championship standings. Twenty-four points separate him from the new leader, Jeremy Martin, with nine rounds left to run.
