This really wasn’t the post I wanted to be putting up this season but I crashed practicing in Florida on Tuesday and dislocated my right shoulder. Laying there after a few seconds I was able to get it back in myself way too easily so I knew something was wrong. After seeing my doctor we found that I rebroke my socket and will need surgery to repair both the socket and labrum. So bummed. Thanks to everyone for the support this season and to my team @honda_powersports_us and mechanic @jordantroxell for the hard work. I’ll try to make it to some rounds later this season to hang out when I’m feeling better
