Aaron Plessinger, who currently sits 10th in the 450SX standings, suffered a broken arm in a practice crash early this week while preparing for round eight of Monster Energy AMA Supercross this weekend in Arlington.
The 25-year-old Ohioan had landed one podium thus far in the 2022 supercross season in his first year with Red Bull KTM Factory Racing. While it is unclear how long the injury will sideline him, KTM did confirm that Plessinger will undergo surgery as soon as possible to repair the damage.

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Aaron Plessinger suffered a practice crash on Wednesday morning, resulting in a broken radius bone in his arm.
Plessinger will undergo surgery as soon as possible to repair the bone, therefore missing Round 8 of the AMA Supercross Championship series this weekend in Arlington, Texas. While his healing time has not been fully determined, Plessinger will most likely miss the remainder of the Supercross season.
Aaron Plessinger: “I was having a great day training today but unfortunately a pretty simple get-off resulted in a broken radius bone. I’m super disappointed as I felt like I was starting to find my groove this week. We made a lot of progress testing, so I’m upset that all our hard work in recent weeks has come to an abrupt end for the season. I’ll do what needs to be done to recover fully but will most likely miss the remainder of the supercross season.”
