RSR's (Rick Schugel Racing) Jesse Wentland is expect to miss all of the 2015 250SX East Region of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship. Wentland, entering his third professional season, announced on Instagram today that he recently had to have a “plate, twelve screws, and a bone graph,” and will be off the bike for a month or two. He left the door open for a possible return halfway through the season, but “more than likely” will return outdoors.
The Minnesota native finished twentieth overall last year in the 250SX East Region, which included a season's best eleventh in Atlanta. Wentland finished fourth in the MX2 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals in Canada in 2014.
Been a rough start to 2015, a plate, 12 screws and a bone graph will keep me off the bike for a month or 2. After discussing My injury with my doctors, sponsors and team owner @rickschugel we have decided to sit out the East Coast Supercross Season as of right now. I always hope for the best, but it will be tough to be ready for the start of the season. It is still a possibility that i will start half way through, but more than likely I will use the time to be prepared for outdoors. Thanks to all my sponsors for there patience and Understanding. #illbeback
