Just weeks after he claimed the 450SX Championship, Jason Anderson sustained an injury on Thursday morning while practicing at Glen Helen Raceway.
Two days before the Thunder Valley National in Lakewood, Colorado, Anderson went out for a standard practice session when the incident happened.
While riding around the infield at a slow pace after an on track accident, Anderson collided with another rider resulting in a compound fracture to his right foot which required surgery. The expected recovery time is four to six weeks. Without complications, he is looking to return to the 2018 AMA Pro Motocross Championship at the Unadilla National on August 11, 2018.
