Makita Suzuki rider Broc Hepler will make his 2006 racing debut this
weekend at Budds Creek, the fourth round of the 2006 Toyota AMA
Motocross Series. Hepler, a title contender on his RM-Z250 the last two years, sat out the last six months after breaking his foot. The healing process was slow, as he reportedly had a bone graph that was slow to heal. Now he enters a series that has seen three winners in the first three races: Mike Alessi, Ryan Villopoto and Andrew Short. Also, word is that Hepler will be wearing Shift Racing gear, as Alloy MX, his previous gear-provider, has closed its doors.
