Comment: Catanzaro plans on racing a borrowed bike for the final two rounds after breaking two ribs, puncturing a lung, separating his shoulder, and fracturing his Scapula in Houston. He raced in Denver, only to discover he also had a fracture in his wrist. One might think the solution would be to sit the night out, but for Catanzaro it was to simply not jump the triples in the rhythm lanes. As for East Rutherford, he says he’s healed quite a bit in the last two weeks and thinks he “should be able to actually jump a triple this weekend.”

Felt awesome to get back on my @jgrmx @suzukicycles bike, it’s been 5 long months of battling this injury. I still have a ways to go 2 more surgeries to fix my nose and eye. I still have no time frame of what the future looks like for me but I’m doing all I can to attempt to race again. Thanks to everyone backing me and supporting me through this awful injury and @road2recovery for managing all of the behind the scenes paperwork insurance. @flyracingusa @jgrmx @suzukicycles @toyotaracing @teamtoyota @kmcwheels @alpinestarsmx @scottmotosports @yoshimura_rd @surfaceproducts @gopro @kellyacleland4 @louiepeick @lynettepeick @lala_land_lauren @dallas_peick @soules86 @steevehowe the list goes on ????. ? @swapmotolive @swapmoto
