KYLE CHISHOLM GOES UNDER THE KNIFE (UPDATE)
51Fifty Energy Drink Yamaha rider Kyle Chisholm has been cleared by medics after crashing in Lakewood, Colorado during round 3 of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship. Kyle crashed in the fast uphill rhythm section during moto 1, resulting in 39 – DNS finishes. The race was red flagged and restarted do to Chisholm’s crash.
Kyle Chisholm commented of the crash: “I’m doing a lot better now, just a little banged up and bruised. I was feeling really good all day, qualified well earlier this morning and was running inside the Top 10 until the crash. I got a good start and was clicking off laps but unfortunately hit a nasty kicker in the uphill rhythm section. Things got a little out of control but I feel better now and am hoping to put this behind me and be ready for High Point in two weeks.”
Despite the hard crash, Chisholm feels he’ll be ready for the next round. There is a weekend off before High Point and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Chiz has been Mr. Consistent this year finishing every 250 West SX, select 450 SX rounds he raced and was Top 10 in the points of the 450 Nationals until this weekend. Look for a solid rebound from the likable #11.
