MICHAEL MOSIMAN TO MISS 2020 LORETTA LYNN NATIONAL ALONG WITH WASHOUGAL & IRONMAN
Michael Mosiman was coming into the 2020 Pro Motocross season after scorning two podium finishes in the 2020 Supercross season including a third place in the 250 East/West Shootout Main Event at final event in Salt Lake City. He also was looking to build off of his first overall podium finish during the 2019 AMA National season and his multiple other podium finishes in single motos. Sadly, Michael Mosiman crashed four weeks ago while practicing in Florida with his training partners Cooper Webb, Zach Osborne, Marvin Musquin, Rj Hampshire, Derek Drake and more at the Baker’s Factory.
With Michael’s return to racing delayed for at least three rounds, the Rockstar Husqvarna team has granted the opportunity to their newest rider, Stilez Robertson, who will be making his Pro debut just one week after winning the 250A and Open Pro Sport titles at the Loretta Lynn Amateur National. Read below for the official press release from Husqvarna:
Michael Mosiman will sit on the sidelines as the abbreviated 9-round 2020 Pro Motocross season starts up on Saturday August 15th.
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.
Michael Mosiman’s #28 Husqvarna FC250 will not be on the track as he recovers from injury.
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.”
Round 1 of the 2020 AMA Pro Motocross Championship will take place this Saturday, August 15 in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
