The Suzuki RACESAFE Medical Team - as the Official Medical team for the Australasian SuperX Championships, is extremely excited to announce the visit of John Bodnar, MD, founder and chief of the Asterisk Mobile Medical Center, Official Medical Team of AMA Supercross and Motocross. "Doc" Bodnar will join the Suzuki RACESAFE medical team for both Parramatta and Brisbane rounds of SuperX.
"We are very pleased to welcome Doc Bodnar to our team and Australia. SuperX is now a truly International series and it’s great to see it not only attracting top US riders but Doc Bodar as well. He’ll be in good company with the growing line up of top US and Aussie riders already well known to him.
This is an awesome opportunity for the RACESAFE Medical Team, we are sure we can learn plenty from him. Our current medical program is first rate, but we make no secret of our desire to provide a world class medical team for a world class series like SuperX. Having "Doc" here will take what we do to the next level again for the benefit of all involved in Australian Motocross.
It is widely known in Australia that Asterisk and the Mobile Medical Center program, lead by Doc Bodnar is the world’s best - we are very honored that he has taken the time to visit our shores and help develop our medical program here. On behalf of the RACESAFE team I would like to thank Doc Bodnar and Tom Carson, Asterisk’s Director of Motor Sports for making the time possible for Doc’s trip. I hope it is the first of many trips between our organizations. We look forward to him enjoying some Aussie hospitality and seeing some great racing ahead." Commented Simon Maas – Suzuki RACESAFE Director of Emergency Services.
Doc Bodnar remarked. "I am very excited to be getting this opportunity, it’s great to be down under and to be able to help the RACESAFE Medical Team who also are well known for their expertise in rider care down here just like the Asterisk team is at home. I hope to be able to pass on my experience to help them continue to develop their systems as the racing down here is just as exciting. They also have one or two ideas that I think will work great for us as well and its awesome that we can share this information to benefit all motocross riders in both countries. I must say that their hospitality has been great."
