Team BLUE Buffalo/Slater Skins/Yamaha's Broc Schmelyun reportedly sustained a broken femur, a concussion, a broken proximal fibula and torn ligaments in his ankle following a horrifying crash yesterday at the High Point National.
Schmelyun lost control of his bike on the face of a jump on Saturday, flying through the air without his bike before crashing down. Schmelyun was attended to at the track before being transferred to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, West Virginia.
In Dec. 2013, the Maryland native sustained two broken legs prior to the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross season while practicing at Milestone. Schmelyun signed with BLUE Buffalo/Slater Skins this off-season and has scored five points through five rounds of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross.
We will have more on his condition as it becomes avaliable.
We spoke with Broc via telephone on Monday and he is in good spirits following the crash. He hopes to be released from the hospital today. We will have the full interview with Broc later this week on Racer X Online.
A GoFundMe account has been set up in Broc's name. If you would like to donate, you can here.
