Comment: Weimer broke a bone in his wrist and dislocated his shoulder in qualifying in San Diego. He had the following to say about his injury on Instagram: “Ok so here is what I have going on. I dislocated my shoulder and broke a bone in my hand. My hand should be good in 4 weeks. My shoulder does not require surgery. I can’t move it for 2-3 weeks then I start rehab which could be about 6+ weeks. My hope is things progress quicker than that and can get back to racing but I will not come back until my shoulder is healed, strong and I am ready. I will do everything I can to get back on the track healthy and strong.

We talked to the team in Dallas and they said that Musquin has returned to training in the U.S. but is not back on his motorcycle yet.
