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.
Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing team manager, Jeremy Albrecht, provided further details. “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.”
The Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team will travel to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas this Saturday for round seven of the 2018 Supercross series.
