Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing‰Ûªs Zach Osborne is out for the remainder of the 2018 Pro Motocross season.
The disappointment of this announcement comes after Osborne was involved in a first turn pile-up during the start of Moto Two at the Thunder Valley National this past weekend in Lakewood, Colorado. He sustained a shoulder injury, torn labrum, which will require surgery. Recovery time needed extends past the current 2018 motocross season. Osborne is expected to make a successful full recovery and back on track for next season.
‰ÛÏI am extremely bummed to say the least." Zach Osborne admitted. "This fourth consecutive championship aboard the FC 250 was one that I wanted bad. It‰Ûªs almost surreal that it has come to an end, but I know everything happens for a reason. I‰Ûªll use this time to prepare mentally and physically for the challenge of my first year in the 450 class. I am excited to get my recovery started and move onto the next step of my career!"
