Phil Nicoletti Injury Update

This is wrist injury week? After the Marvin Musquin announcement earlier today, the Muc-Off/FXR/ClubMX Yamaha team has provided updates on Phil Nicoletti and Garrett Marchbanks, both of which are sidelined with wrist injuries. 

During qualifying in Oakland, Phil crashed in the whoops and dislocated his wrist. Per the team, Phil has some appointments this week and surgery is likely to repair some tendons. More updates to follow as we learn more. 

Here is an update on Marchbanks, who has been out all season due to a pre-season wrist injury:

Surgery went well for the Daytona champion as he had the plate removed from his wrist on Monday. The next step it to get the stitches removed in another week and then start the rebuilding process. Garrett continues to work with the team and also works as a trainer helping the amateurs every day. We appreciate his dedication and participation to help continue the growth of the ClubMX program by giving back his time. A bit more time will help us determine when he can return to racing.
