Late in the main event Saturday night in Phoenix, AutoTrader.com/Toyota/JGR Yamaha’s Weston Peick sustained a broken bone in his foot after casing a jump. Peick announced on Instagram yesterday that he will have the foot examined on Monday, and will know more at that time. His status for round 3 in Anaheim is not known at this time.
Really bummed I let that podium get away last night, on lap 17 I cased a jump and rolled my ankle and broke a bone in my foot. Getting it checked out Monday, I'll keep y'all posted. Thanks to my team for building a bad ass bike. @jgrmx @teamtoyota @flyracingusa @yamahamotorusa @autotrader @fmf73 @moserenergy @nfab_racing @surfaceproducts @pirellimx @louiepeick @budmanantunez @pbarker20 @burner231 @that_dean_machine @asilvy58
Peick just announced on Instagram that he is getting a screw put in tomorrow and hopes to be ready for the weekend. We will continue to update this story throughout the week.
AutoTrader.com/Toyota/JGR Yamaha released an official statement earlier today on Peick's injury.
While racing in a podium position during the final laps of the Phoenix, Ariz. round of the 2015 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship AutoTrader.com/Toyota/Yamaha Team rider Weston Peick suffered a broken bone in his foot after casing a triple jump. Despite the pain, he still managed a career best fourth place finish, and sits fifth in series points after two of 17 events.
An initial evaluation at the Asterisk Mobile Medical Center determined there was a break, and a subsequent MRI and further analysis led to Peick having a screw inserted to stabilize the broken bone. Peick is determined to try his best to race this Sat., Jan. 17 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.
