Tye Simmonds – Bronchitis
Comment: JDR/J-Star/KTM rider Tye Simmonds is out this weekend after being diagnosed with rhinosinusitis and bronchitis earlier this week. Says team manager Nathan Ramsey: “We will wait to hear from the doctors and make our decision on when Tye should return to racing based upon those results. We definitely don’t want to jeopardize his health by sending him to a race when he is not 100% physically.”

Austin Stroupe – Shoulder
Comment: You may not see Austin this summer. His shoulder injury from last year was still nagging, so he went under the knife after supercross. He could be back by mid-season, depending on how the recovery goes.
