Cypress, CA (March 8, 2007) - - Graves/Yamaha Factory racer Doug Henry crashed this past weekend during a Supermoto race in Florida and is already working towards recovery. Henry, a National Motocross champion, X-Game gold medalist, and fan favorite was competing in local event in preparation for the 2007 AMA Supermoto series. Henry suffered a back injury and was immediately transported to a local hospital where he underwent surgery on Monday, March 5th.
In typical Henry fashion, his positive mental outlook remains strong, his attitude upbeat and his charisma unequalled. Joined by his wonderful and supportive wife Stacey, Henry will be transported to Atlanta, Georgia to begin extensive rehabilitation at the aggressive Shepherd Center on Friday, March 9th.
Yamaha will continue to update Henry’s progress as more information becomes available. Cards and letters for Doug Henry can be sent to Yamaha Motor Corporation, attn: Doug Henry, 6555 Katella Ave. Cypress, CA. 90630
