Austin Forkner crashed in the first timed qualifying session at round three of 2021 Monster Energy Supercross and walked off in visible pain. Now, less than an hour later, Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki has released the following statement that confirms that he will not race this evening. The statement is below, but it does not confirm what he injured exactly. It seemed as though he was favouring his shoulder or wrist.
“BUMMED. @AustinForkner suffered an injury in practice today in Houston and unfortunately it will sideline him for the night.”
