Broc Hepler Update

Cypress California, April 10, 2007 – Yamaha Factory Racing’s Broc Hepler is making steady progress in his recovery from a practice session crash in late February while preparing for the East Coast Lites Supercross season.

“Following positive test results, Broc’s doctor is allowing him to start to do more activities” said Yamaha Team Manager Jim Perry.  “We are happy to hear we are going in the right direction and he will keep us updated. We hope to have him back in action for the MX series but will ultimately take as long as needed”.

“It is great to finally get back into normal activities” says Broc. “I’m making improvements everyday and anxious to get back on the bike as soon as possible. My goal is to be ready for the first National if my body is ready.”

Yamaha will continue to update Broc’s improvements as he works toward the opening MX Lites Hangtown National on May 20th in Sacramento, California.
