The off-season has only just begun, but unfortunately a handful of riders have already succumbed to injury. There was the Davi Millsaps incident, which may have prematurely ended his career, and now Austin Forkner is going to be sidelined for an unspecified amount of time. Forkner released a statement on his social media accounts last night, which can be found below.
It remains to be seen just how long Forkner will be sidelined for, but the injury will certainly prevent him from lining up at the 250SX West opener in January. Forkner missed the final five rounds of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series this year due to injury also.
