While running in tenth place late in the first Lites moto at Glen Helen on Sunday, Boost Mobile/Yamaha of Troy's Zach Osborne washed the front end of his YZ250F, resulting in a broken radius bone in his left arm. "I was feeling really good," Osborne told us today. "I was closing in on ninth place toward the end of the moto, and I just lost the front end. As soon as I landed I knew something was wrong, and then the Asterisk Mobile Medic Unit confirmed that I did have a broken bone in my arm." Osborne returned home to Virginia on Monday and visited a local hospital today to get a cast. The good news is that he only suffered a minor break to the radius bone, which won't require any surgery, and the doctor told him he should be healed up in two to three weeks. "I'm hoping to be ready to go for High Point," Zach said.
