Twisted Teas/HEP Motorsports Suzuki’s Brandon Hartranft has provided details on his significant injuries sustained last week in a practice crash while preparing for the 2023 Monster Energy Supercross Championship.
“Tuesday I was training and did this rhythm. It was a 3-3-3-on off. Well the middle of the 3 triple my bike cut out and I landed head first,” he wrote on his Instagram.
Hartranft sustained multiple injuries, which include:
L1-L2 endplate fractures.
L3-L4 transverse process fractures.
L1-L3 spinous process fractures.
Left hip dislocation.
Right rib fractures 5-7.
Right scapular fracture.
Right hemothorax with chest tube placement.
According to Hartranft “right now we’re just trying to get healthy and get back standing on my feet. I’m in pain but no pain no gain!!”
