We thought Weston Peick was made of concrete. Lo and behold he has a mortal side to him. That doesn’t mean he isn’t tough as nails, though. Weston has been riding with torn tendons in his hand the entire summer, yet he refused to let that sideline him. The last round at the 2018 Budds Creek National was extremely rough and took a toll on his injured hand. He will sit out the last round in Indiana at the Ironman National as he will undergo hand surgery today.
Weston Peick comments after the Budds Creek National: “Budds Creek was the last round for me, because of my hand injury. The race didn’t go as well as I wanted it to. I didn’t get the best start in the first moto, but I worked my way up. The track was hard pack and bumpy, which took a toll on my hand. Honestly, it was one of my worst weekends for my hand issue. We made some changes to the bike for moto two, and they also prepped some of the track that was pretty gnarly rough. I got off to a sixth-place start and held there for half the race. I’m obviously not stoked, but given my hand situation, to pull off a top ten is good in my books. I am getting surgery on Tuesday to get my hand fixed. At this point I’m not sure how long I’ll be off the bike.”
