I am writing in response to the message posted on the Motocross Action website with the heading “Carmichael in for MXDN”. (Motocross-of-Nations.)
While I would love to report that this news is accurate I must let you know that Ricky’s injury is far more than just a bruise. Ricky continues to work very hard with his shoulder rehabilitation and would love nothing more than to get on his motorcycle to race for his country at the Motocross-of-Nations but it is still too early to tell. As of today Ricky has delayed his trip by one day to give the doctors every opportunity to get him ready to go.
I have Ricky’s gear all packed and will be flying to England today. I will be joining the team tomorrow to discuss our options with the Team management. Ricky will be meeting with the Team USA staff in England on Friday and they will make a collective decision at that time.
