Hepler Injury Update

Team Yamaha's Broc Hepler just can't catch a break. Well, yes he can. In practice at Anaheim this past weekend he launched the jump into the whoops too far and crashed, resulting in a broken thumb. "I'll probably be out for six weeks," he told us today. Hepler was a pre-season title favorite in the Western Regional Lites division, and going into Anaheim 3 he was sitting fourth in points with 11-4-2-12 finishes.
