Dylan Ferrandis To Miss Remainder of Monster Energy AMA Supercross

Defending 450 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Champion Dylan Ferrandis will turn his focus to the season opener on May 28 at Fox Raceway, the team announced today. 

The Monster Energy/Star Racing Yamaha rider has been dealing with a wrist injury since Detroit when he came up short on a jump and will miss the final four rounds of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship.

“Looking at the bigger picture, we made the decision as a team that it was best for Dylan to focus on getting back to feeling 100% for the outdoor season. It’s a tough sport, and we have a lot of racing ahead of us, so it’s more important at this point of the supercross season to focus on defending his title in the Pro Motocross Championship.”

“Together with the team, we decided to not go back to racing for the remaining rounds of supercross. I just returned to riding motocross, and I felt that my wrist was not fully ready to support the load of supercross. It’s a bummer for sure. I will focus on getting my wrist back to 100% and be ready for the outdoor season.”
