So the news is out. About a month ago I had a practice accident where I re injured my back in the same areas as Dallas. We got it checked out and at the time it was 2 bulged disks. We were able to manage the best we could with riding an training the last month with good and bad days. Well Saturday during practice 2 I had a crash that upset my back and as the day went on it got worse and worse with moto 2 being a disaster. Well Monday I got checked again and we found that I have 3 herniated disks in my back as well as a torn nerve and bone contusions on my sacrum and both iliac joints. With that being said I need to rest my back and doing the proper procedures to make sure my back is fine for the rest of my career. Thank you to all my sponsors for the continued support. I’m pissed off but in racing s*** happens and I will be determined as ever in 2021 to get back on top
