Initial reports are that Baggett suffered a broken wrist at the MEC.

"Hey, did you see that?" said the new 250 National Motocross Champion. "I was up there with some big names! I was fourth in practice at one point on that bike! Had some big names behind me. I was pumped!"
But Baggett was sporting a splint and wrap on his wrist. He was still relatively upbeat, but that was partially the work of some pain meds—word is he was in some real pain when the crash first happened. He'll get some more updates this week as to his time table for returning, but surely the break will have an impact on his supercross schedule. Not at all the night he wanted, but he at least seemed happy to have given it a shot against the big bikes.
