On the eve of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross opener, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna announced that Michael Mosiman will miss the first three rounds of the championship due to “complications” suffered during a practice crash.
The release is vague and only says that Mosiman crashed four weeks ago. It does not state any specific injuries, only that he will miss the first three rounds.
Below is the PR, which also officially announces that Stilez Robertson will make his debut for the team.
The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team announced today that rising 250MX star Michael Mosiman will miss the first three rounds of the 2020 AMA Pro Motocross Championship as he continues to recover from complications suffered during a practice crash four weeks ago.
The team also announced that Stilez Robertson, recently-crowned AMA Nicky Hayden Amateur Horizon Award winner, will make his professional debut in the 250MX class this Saturday at the legendary Loretta Lynn Ranch. Robertson is set to compete in the first three rounds of the series as Mosiman’s condition is further re-evaluated.
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Stephen Westfall: “It’s unfortunate that Michael has to sit out for at least the first three rounds, as he was riding very well prior to his practice crash. We will re- evaluate the situation in a couple weeks but in the meantime, Stilez will get a chance at showcasing his skills against the top 250 riders in the nation. We’re really looking forward to having the team back at the races.”
