Dammit, doggies, we got a cowboy down. Red Bull KTM’s Aaron Plessinger sustained a broke arm in a practice crash on Wednesday and is likely to miss the remainder of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, the team announced.
The team said Plessinger will undergo surgery as soon as possible to repair the radius bone.
“I was having a great day training today but unfortunately a pretty simple get-off resulted in a broken radius bone,” Plessinger said. “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.”
In his first season with the team, Plessinger has one podium and currently sits 10th in points.
