Aaron Plessinger breaks arm, set to miss remainder of 2022 Monster Energy Supercross.
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Aaron Plessinger crashed whilst training in Florida on Wednesday, February 23, and will miss the remainder of 2022 Monster Energy Supercross. A broken arm was sustained in the crash – he will have surgery as soon as possible. Plessinger will not be the only rider missing from under the KTM Factory Racing tent in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday evening, as Max Vohland is also likely to miss the race after injuring his shoulder at round seven.
Plessinger was having a successful season in his new colours; tenth is the position that he currently occupies after seven rounds, despite failing to finish at round four. A crash in the main event at that round, run at Angel Stadium, slowed his progress, as a painful wrist meant that he was unable to ride in the week following the race. A podium finish at the second round of 2022 Monster Energy Supercross, Oakland, was the obvious highlight of his term.

MURRIETA, Calif. – Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Aaron Plessinger suffered a practice crash on Wednesday morning, resulting in a broken radius bone in his arm.
Plessinger will undergo surgery as soon as possible to repair the bone therefore missing round eight of the AMA Supercross series this weekend in Arlington, Texas. While his healing time has not been fully determined, Plessinger will most likely miss the remainder of the supercross season.
Aaron Plessinger: “I was having a great day training today but unfortunately a pretty simple get-off resulted in a broken radius bone. I’m super disappointed as I felt like I was starting to find my groove this week. We made a lot of progress testing, so I’m upset that all our hard work in recent weeks has come to an abrupt end for the season. I’ll do what needs to be done to recover fully but will most likely miss the remainder of the supercross season.”
