Jeff Alessi – Foot
Comment: Had to undergo yet another surgery on his injured foot and will be out the entire motocross season.

Justin Barcia - Nose
Comment: Suffered a broken nose at Spring Creek last weekend, but he's ready to go for Washougal. "My nose looks a lot worse than it actually is," he said in a team press release. "I had the docs check it out and they gave me the thumbs up. I can breathe through it just fine, it just looks kind of rough. I'll probably scare the kids out there.

Matt Boni – Tib/Fib
Comment: Crashed at the Dallas SX and sustained a compound fracture to his tibia and fibula in one of his legs. Told us that he will be able to return to racing in September.

Jarred Browne – Collarbone
Comment:  Says Jarred: “I’ve been riding for about a month but my wrist is taking a lot longer than expected to get its strength back. I want to be 100 percent ready when I come back and that probably won't be until Unadilla.”

Kyle Chisholm – Misc.
Comment: Kyle is still recovering from his crash at the Houston SX where he bruised a lung. According to his team, “He is still having problems breathing and getting 100 percent healthy so he will sit out some races to continue to recover.”

Christian Craig - Wrist
Comment: According to the Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil team manager, Craig is not going to be able to race this weekend. "He went to Dr. Murphey in San Diego and it was determined that he has a stress fracture in his wrist. He will take ten days off and try riding before Unadilla and if things go well he will make his return then."

Simon Cudby – Shoulder
Comment: Injured his shoulder in a mountain bike accident two weeks ago. Scheduled for surgery next week and will have his arm immobilized for six weeks.

Comment: Tore his ACL in the first moto at High Point. Still riding but isn’t sure if he’ll do any more nationals this summer.

Cody Gilmore – Shoulder
Comment: Dislocated his shoulder in his heat race in Seattle and suffered a slight tear in his labrum. The healing process stalled so he had surgery recently to have his labrum fixed, so he'll be out all summer.

Gavin Gracyk – Knee
Comment: Had a full ACL repair. “In a few weeks I will be at the three-month mark and will then be able to start doing much more intense training on the knee,” Gavin told us recently. “Looks like I will be able to begin riding in mid- to late-August.”

Comment: The Rock River Powersports rider broke his arm in qualifying at Budds Creek and will be out for the rest of the season.

He signed with the Hart & Huntington Kawasaki team for 2011 and 2012 but the injuries prevented him from racing the 2011 season. Hill underwent another surgery recently and is hoping to get back on the bike in the next month or two with an eye to come back for the 2012 supercross series.
