JUSTIN BOGLE INJURY UPDATE: Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team rider Justin Bogle sustained a broken right arm during the opening lap of the second 450 heat race at the San Diego Supercross. The RM-Z450 rider successfully underwent surgery on Monday and is on the road to recovery.
The Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing team manager, Jeremy Albrecht, provided further details on Justin status. “Bogle was making progress throughout the day in San Diego. Unfortunately, he was landed on by another rider and sustained a break to his right humerus. He was transported to a local hospital for observation. On Monday, Justin underwent what his surgeons, Dr. Tal David and Dr. Christopher Sherman are calling a successful surgery, which included fixing the injury with two plates and screws. As far as a timeline for Bogle’s return, Albrecht stated, “We will have a better idea once Justin heals up from surgery and resumes daily activities. Malcolm Stewart will continue racing for the team while Bogle is sidelined.”
Official release from JRG on Justin Bogle’s status: Justin Bogle was looking to improve in his third race back, but a crash in his heat race knocked him out of action. The initial injury report is a broken upper arm; an updated status will be released when available.
