So with the hype building for the return of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross season tonight in Salt Lake City. It's a record book moment and it could not have come at a better time to give the whole world something to look forward to and a little slice of normality.
So the big question now is who will be there and who will miss out? Well luckily for you guys I am here and ready to fill you all in with the deets! Let's see whos in and out for the premier 450 SX class.
Ankle - Out
It was a massive blow to the start of his 450 Supercross American dream move when he was forced out pre season with an ankle injury. Anstie is back riding though after having surery on his Achiles tendon and heel and is now focused on being fit and ready for the start of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship.
Concussion - Out
Another rider that has been in the wars is Justin Bogle with yet another concussion. He crashed out in Glendale and there is currently no news on his return so i would expect him to skip the rest of the Supercross season.
Hand - In
The Honda HRC rider is fit and ready for action this coming weekend after breaking his hand at the Daytona Supercross. He has already been given the COVID-19 all clear from the testing lab in Utah, all systems go!
Collarbone - In
After a nasty spill in Arlington the likable Kawasaki rider has healed up and is pumped to get back to racing tonight. Expect big things from this rookie 450 rider, remember this was the dude that dominated the Monster cup on his 450 debut!
Shoulder - In
Although Cunningham has only recently got back on the bike training he is feeling good so has confirmed that he will be in for Salt Lake City.
Knee/Toes - Out
This one will be of no surprise to anyone after a horror crash which saw Martin sustain a torn ACL, a torn patella tendon, a broken big toe and also a few metatarsals at the St. Louis Supercross. The good news though is that he has had the surgerys done and is healing nicely.
Knee - Out
A pre season injury has seen Musquin sit out of the current 2020 season while he recovers from the surgery, he is still not ready so will sit the season out now.
Leg - In
Noren is fully healed up and recovered from a broken tibia from a crash in St. Louis and is primed and ready to race tonight. Looking forward to seeing him back on a bike and in the thick of the action.
Another nasty injury list for the Rockstar Husquavana rider which consisted of a broken rib, wrist and five vertebrae are luckily all behind him now and he is confirmed riding. I expect someone of his temrement to be right up in the pack tonight laying down some of his customary fire.
Foot - Out
A pre season injury saw him pick up a broken foot at the Aus-X Supercross event last year and as such has not raced at all this Supercross season. He is back riding though and his focus is now to be ready for the start of the outdoor Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship.
Hand - In
After breaking his hand at the Arlington Supercross event it was feared that his return to pro racing had hit another hurdle but he has confirmed he is recoevered and ready to fight tonight in Salt Lake City.
