Metcalfe, who will have missed four rounds of the AMA Motocross series due to a thumb injury sustained at High Point, will have completed eight weeks of rehabilitation after surgery and is ready to head back into racing action.

“I am so grateful to only miss four rounds of racing and I couldn’t have done it without all of the great people around me,” said Metcalfe. “Dr. Michael Ting, first off, was able to pull some strings and get me into surgery immediately after the injury which was a vital factor in my quick return. Also, Living Fuel Nutrition was there to help me out with getting me back up to speed with training and riding.”

“However, mostly importantly, was my team, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki, who has stuck by me through all of my recent injuries. It is hard to explain how good it feels to have such a great bunch of people around you that really believe in you. I can not thank my team enough and only hope that I can repay them by going out there next weekend and giving it all I have.“
Metcalfe has been riding his Kawasaki KX™250F for the last two weeks as well as training throughout the duration of this recuperation. He will utilize this last week to put on the final touches before heading to Colorado. And although his thumb injury was a bit of a set back, he is ready to take on the remainder of the motocross season at 100 percent.
