450MX

Justin Barcia – Wrist

Comment: Barcia injured his wrist before the season, suffering a fracture of his lunate bone along with some ligament damage. He’s out for Phoenix.

Justin Bogle – Lungs

Comment: Bogle had a big crash during the week before A2 and had another at A2 after nabbing the holeshot in his heat. He was having trouble breathing afterward, and after getting checked up he learned he’d bruised his lungs. By the way, we heard Bogle was wearing a chest protector under his jersey, but this hit was gnarly enough to hurt anyway. Could have been worse, though. Bogle will miss Phoenix but the team expects him back in Oakland.

Trey Canard – Shoulder

Comment: Canard sustained a tear in his rotator cuff at the opener during practice. He hasn’t raced since and will miss this weekend.

Fredrik Noren – Tonsillitis

Comment: Roczen had a big crash last week at A2, suffering injuries to his wrist, elbow, and radius (forearm). He’ll undergo several surgeries and is out for the foreseeable future.
