51FIFTY Energy Drink Yamaha’s Austin Politelli and GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle will both miss the final round of Monster Energy Supercross this Saturday in Las Vegas. Politelli sustained a wrist injury at the final round of the 250SX West Region in Santa Clara and has been advised by doctors to not race and begin treatment.
"Not being able to ride is more painful than the injuries themselves," Politelli said in a team statement. "My wrist has not healed and trying to put in a moto at race pace has only made it worse. 51FIFTY along with the rest of the sponsors have supported me all season long and I'm incredibly thankful for their contributions."
GEICO Honda announced yesterday that Bogle would miss the season finale to turn his focus to the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross opener on May 16 at Hangtown.
