Shoulder Injury To End Nate Thrasher’s Pro Motocross Season

Nate Thrasher’s rookie season is done. The Monster Energy/Star Racing Yamaha rider announced today on Instagram that he has undergone surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder and will miss the remainder of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross. 

On the opening lap of the first 250 moto at round six of the championship at Spring Creek, Max Vohland cut to the inside and across Thrasher in the long roller section, and Thrasher went down hard and was favoring his right shoulder. He was able to walk off the track on his own, before being attended to by the Alpinestars medical crew and carted off the track. He missed Washougal with what the team said was a separated shoulder. Today, he announced he’s done for the year.

“UPDATE!!!!! I had surgery today on my shoulder to repair my torn labrum from my crash at Millville! Everything went smooth and we’re looking to heal up quick with some therapy and be ready next season. Some tough luck but also a lot of positives to take away from my rookie year! Thanks to my team @starracingyamaha and everyone else for the constant support through it all! ????????”

Trasher had a successful rookie season in Monster Energy Supercross, winning both Atlanta 1 and 3. He finished seventh in the 250SX West Region after sitting out the East/West Showdown so he didn’t surpass the 135-point threshold (which saves him a year of eligibility in the 250SX Class).

Thrasher currently sits 19th in the 250 Class points standings in Pro Motocross.
