SoBe/Samsung/Factory Connection Honda rider Billy Lanoninovich flew to San Francisco this week to have his knee checked out after his collision with Grant Langston at the Budds Creek National. But when doctors scoped his right knee, they discovered a torn ACL, which they then replaced. As a result, it appears that the season is over for #132.

As for Langston, the other rider involved in the collision, his wrist is still swollen, and he too is planning on sitting out Red Bud this weekend.
