Comment: Injured his shoulder in a mountain bike accident two weeks ago. Scheduled for surgery in two weeks from now and will have his arm immobilized for six weeks. Fortunately, his trigger finger survived the endo unscathed.
Jimmy DeCotis- Elbow
Comment: Dislocated elbow at the Seattle SX. Team manager Mike LaRocco told us that Jimmy hopes to get released to start riding next week and that he probably won’t race till Unadilla at the earliest.
Cody Gilmore – Shoulder
Comment: Dislocated his shoulder in his heat race in Seattle and suffered a slight tear in his labrum. The healing process stalled so he had surgery recently to have his labrum fixed, so he'll be out all summer.
Gavin Gracyk – Knee
Comment: Had a full ACL repair. “In a few weeks I will be at the three-month mark and will then be able to start doing much more intense training on the knee,” Gavin told us recently. “Looks like I will be able to begin riding in mid- to late-August.”
Simon Cudby will miss at least six weeks after a mountain bike accident.
Jared Hicks – Arm
Comment: The Rock River Powersports rider broke his arm in qualifying at Budds Creek and will be out for the rest of the season.
Josh Hill – Various
Comment: Josh Hill is still laid up from his injury last year while he was practicing for the X-Games. He signed with the Hart & Huntington Kawasaki team for 2011 and 2012 but the injuries prevented him from racing the 2011 season. Hill underwent another surgery recently and is hoping to get back on the bike in the next month or two with an eye to come back for the 2012 supercross series.
Marvin Musquin – Thumb
Comment: Suffered a compound fracture of his thumb after this first-turn crash with Justin Barcia at the Freestone National. According to KTM, he’s back on the bike and this is his second week riding and his thumb is getting better every day but is still pretty sore and painful when he rides. He is expected to return at Washougal.
Austin Stroupe – Shoulder
Comment: You may not see Austin this summer. His shoulder injury from last year was still nagging, so he went under the knife after supercross. He’s recently started riding again and hopes to make the last three nationals.
Jason Thomas – Knee
Comment: The BTOSports.com/BBMX Suzuki rider underwent ACL surgery and hopes to be back in the fall.
Ivan Tedesco – Hip/Knee
