It has been confirmed that Austin Forkner will sit out the remainder of the Supercross Season. Forkner was involved in a collision during the start of the main 250SX Western Regional event at Anaheim. Forkner went down with a knee injury.
Medical professionals determined the injury will force an early conclusion to his Supercross efforts.
“I felt great going into this year and was ready to challenge for the championship,” said Forkner. “I think my qualifying and heat race speed proved that the preparation from the whole team was on par to win races. Unfortunately, I was involved in a racing incident during the start of the Main Event and injured my knee. This is definitely a frustrating situation, but I’m extremely motivated to focus on my recovery and I will get back to work with the team.”
