IRVINE, Calif. (October 17, 2007) – Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto was injured on Monday afternoon after crashing at a private practice course in Southern California.
Villopoto underwent successful surgery on Tuesday to repair a broken collarbone. The recovery time is expected to take four to six weeks and should have him back on the bike at that time preparing for the 2008 AMA Supercross season.
“Ryan is currently home recovering from surgery,” said Team Manager Mike Fisher. “Fortunately this happened when it did, allowing him plenty of time to make a full recovery and be healthy for the start of the season.”
