Torrance CA - American Honda announced today that Honda Red Bull Racing rider Ben Townley’s return to competition will be delayed due to rehabilitation complications. Honda Red Bull Racing team manager Erik Kehoe stated, “Ben has been training on his CRF450R for about a month and continues to have difficulty with his shoulder. He is working with Red Bull’s elite athlete training staff and will be meeting with several shoulder specialists to identify the cause of the problem and choose the best course of action to expedite his recovery. Our goal is to make sure he is 100 percent before he returns to racing.”
It may be several weeks before Townley can establish a course of action for treatment. American Honda will provide additional details when they are available.
