Autotrader/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing Team‰Ûªs Justin Bogle will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.
The Oklahoma rider underwent a successful sub muscular ulnar nerve transposition surgery yesterday to repair the damaged ulnar nerve in his upper right arm. Bogle had been dealing with fatigue and loss of strength in his hand since returning to racing last month following a long layoff due to a broken upper right arm sustained at the San Diego Supercross.
‰ÛÏI came into 2018 with high hopes, but I was hit with a number of uncontrollable circumstances. The year went sideways and never straightened out," Bogle explained. "Originally, I wanted to finish the last three rounds of the Nationals, but after further consulting with my doctors, we decided to get surgery in order to fix my arm and start with a clean slate moving forward. Unfortunately, I will miss the remaining Nationals. Thanks to the team for backing my decision after what has been a really difficult season.‰Û
