Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Jo Shimoda said he suffered no major damage to his hand after having to exit the second 250 moto at the Unadilla National after he tagged one of the barrel trackmarkers late in the moto.
“Unadilla, except the starts speed and fitness was good but on the second moto I hit my hand on the barrier and couldn’t hang on to the bike to finish the moto, 🤦🏻♂️ luckily nothing is broken just in pain, thanks for support and move on🤛🏻,” he wrote on Instagram.
Shimoda finished the first moto in seventh and was running inside the top ten in moto two before he suffered a DNF. His 7-36 motos put him 16th overall on the day.
Through eight rounds of the championship, Shimoda currently sits sixth place in the 250 Class championship standings.
