Yesterday, Transworld Motocross snagged a photo of Alex Ray at Glen Helen Raceway working with the Monster Energy/Factory Yamaha team. While there is no official word yet from Yamaha, sources have told Racer X that Ray will be filling in for the injured Cooper Webb on the team. Webb sustained a fractured tibia and two fractures in his fibula in a crash in Minneapolis. There is no official timetable on his return at this time.
Ray posted a photo on Instagram yesterday with the simple caption: “Unreal… #speechless.”
Look for official word from Yamaha soon.
