Austin Forkner to Return in Atlanta

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki confirmed today that Austin Forkner will return to action this weekend for the East/West Showdown in Atlanta.

Forkner has been out since suffering a broken collarbone in the third race at the Triple Crown event in Arlington.

The incident happened when Honda HRC’s Jett Lawrence and Forkner collided mid-air over the finish line after Lawrence hit a Tuff Blox and veered into Forkner’s line.

The team announced the news on Instagram:


@AustinForkner will join @JoShimoda at this weekend’s East/West Showdown in Atlanta. Let’s wish him good luck! 🙌 🙌”

“Jo and Austin have been riding together this week along with Jason [Anderson]. Both guys have done some MX riding recently to prep for the faster style track at Atlanta. They fly out for Atlanta’s press day on Thursday and are looking forward to racing.” – Iain Southwell, Team Manager.
