Due to a nagging back injury sustained before the start of the
season, Josh Hansen will not be contesting the remainder of the 2006
Red Bull KTM Supercross Team Manager Larry Brooks said, "We want to make sure that Josh is 100% healthy. We have sent him to numerous doctors and specialists to ensure that the problems Josh is experiencing are fully diagnosed and then treated. We do not want to have reoccurring injuries for our young rider. He will now concentrate on his health and take the remaining 2006 Supercross season off and make a full comeback for the 2006 Outdoor Nationals.”
Jay Marmont will continue to contest the East Coast Supercross series and is currently 19th in the East Coast series points standings.
