Justin Bogle Injury Update

[Update: May 21]

An MRI earlier this week revealed that Justin Bogle didn’t sustain any structural damage to his shoulder in a crash at the opening round of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross last Saturday at Hangtown. Bogle will not need surgery, but will miss “a few weeks” to rest.

There has been no announcement on a return date.

"Being cautious with that and trying to figure things out, I got an MRI and got everything checked out this week," Bogle said in a statement. "It's just really banged up, and with the shoulder it's going to take a few weeks. I'm not exactly sure how long I'll be out, but it's definitely not a surgery thing or a season-ender, so that's good."

 

GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle left the second moto of the opening round of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross at Hangtown early Saturday after colliding with Jessy Nelson and violently hitting the dirt. Racer X’s Aaron Hansel reported on Saturday that Bogle was “spitting up some blood, and the team says he’ll get an MRI on his shoulder to determine whether he has a tear or deep tissue bruising.”

This afternoon, Bogle released an update on Twitter stating, in part, that he spent Saturday night in the hospital and “luckily only internal stuff was bruised lung and some minor kidney trauma” and that he will undergo an MRI on his shoulder later today.

We will have more on his status as information becomes available.
