Gavin Gracyk – Knee

Josh Hansen – Hand
Comment: Had the metal removed from the hand he injured in SX. “The doctor said everything looks good. I just have four weeks off the bike, but everything is cool.”

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

Kyle Peters – Back
Comment: Sustained a small fracture of the T10 vertebrae in his back in a crash at Loretta Lynn’s, which will force him to miss his rookie debut this weekend with the DNA Shred Stix/Star Yamaha team. His return is unknown at this point.
Ryan Sipes – Low Blood Sugar
Comment: Says Sipes: “The doctors say I have really low blood sugar, so basically when I was trying to slim down to hang with these youngsters, I wasn't eating enough. It takes a few weeks to get back to 100 percent and I don't feel like I am there yet. I don't want to ride around in tenth, you know? When I come back I want to be up front. So I'm going to sit out this weekend, stay home and ride and try to get stronger.”
