Just spoke with Tyler Keefe and, unfortunately, Christian Craig has broken his navicular bone… again. It is the same wrist he injured before and it will require surgery to repair. That means the speedy TLD rider will be sidelined for the rest of the 2013 season. It is a blow to Craig’s season as he was coming off his best finish ever at the Salt lake City supercross and looking to have a good summer at the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.
In related news, the TLD team is out at Milestone today in Riverside, CA testing with Malcolm Stewart to possibly fill in for the injured Craig on the 450 this summer. Tyler couldn’t confirm that the younger Stewart would indeed be filling in, as today is his first ride on the Honda, but with both parties in need it seems like a good fit. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
