Bud Racing/Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Maxime Desprey sustained a fractured femur at Round 3 of Monster Energy Supercross on Saturday, ending his 250SX West Region campaign.
Desprey underwent surgery over the weekend to have a nail inserted to attach the fracture. “The operation went well,” he wrote on Instagram. “They put me a nail to attach the fracture. I'll stay a few days in the hospital and then I go to Menifee with my team mate and mechanics.”
In his first season in Monster Energy Supercross, the French native qualified for the season opener, finishing twentieth. He failed to qualify for Round 2 in San Diego.
The team is now without both members, as rookie Darian Sanayei sustained several fractures in his back prior to the season and has missed the first three rounds.
