Lucas Oil/Troy Lee Designs just announced that Malcolm Stewart will miss Round 8 of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross from Millville, MN. Below if the official press release.
Corona, CA: This weekend, the AMA Pro Motocross Championship heads to Millville, MN, and while one TLD / Lucas Oil / Honda Team member will be making his return, the squad will still remain one man short.
TLD's Malcolm Stewart will be forced to sit out of round eight at Spring Creek MX due to severe dehydration that has taken a toll on his kidney and liver function. Although he has been fighting through and hoping to feel better, the symptoms have proved too severe. On the advice of a medical professional, the only 450 rider on the TLD squad will be taking a break in order to recover.
Cole Seely, Jessy Nelson and Shane McElrath will represent the team in the 250 class at this weekend's Spring Creek National. The entire team wishes Malcolm a speedy recovery, and we hope to see him out of the hospital and back in action at Unadilla.
