2019 EAST COAST SUPERCROSS CHAMPION CHASE SEXTON INJURED DURING PRACTICE CRASH
The reigning 250 East Coast Supercross Champion, Chase Sexton announced his collarbone injury over the weekend via social media. The Geico Honda rider was his own mechanic for the day while riding in his home state of Illinois when he ran out of gas over a jump. Chase was practicing on his new Honda CRF450 as recently signed with the factory HRC Honda 450 team. Chase is scheduled to compete for the Geico Honda 250 team during the 2020 Supercross season and then make the transition to the HRC 450 for the 2020 AMA Outdoor Nationals. Luckily the injury will not require surgery and Chase expects to be back on the bike in three weeks.
Chase Sexton posted: “Just going to give you a little UPDATE on what’s been going on lately. While I was up in Illinois I had a little mishap while riding with friends. I was my own mechanic for that day just having some fun on the 450 and was just doing a moto that ended up being a lot longer than I planned which resulted in me running out of gas on a jump. Ended up crashing and cracking my collarbone, it’s a bummer but it definitely could’ve been worse so I’m thankful for that. It happened a little over 2 weeks ago and luckily I don’t have to get surgery! I apologize for the delay, I just wanted to make sure the bone was healing properly and I was positive I didn’t need surgery before I said anything! I should be back on the bike in 3 weeks but in the mean time I’ve been training off the bike with @blakesavage762 putting in work! Again, I’m sorry for the delay and y’all deserve to hear the truth! Thanks for all the support! @honda_powersports_us@fchonda”
