Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing Team‰Ûªs Aaron Plessinger returns to action this weekend to make his debut in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship 450MX at The Wick 338 in Southwick, Massachusetts on Saturday, June 29.
The 2018 250MX National Champion spent months working to recover from his broken right heel injured at the Daytona Supercross. Plessinger has been able to put time on his Yamaha YZ450F, riding and training in Florida and is eager to join his teammates Justin Barcia and Dean Ferris at the sixth round of the championship.
‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm super excited to get back to racing. It‰Ûªs been about four months now since I got hurt. I don‰Ûªt think I‰Ûªve taken that much time off a dirt bike in a long, long time, so it‰Ûªs been about the longest four months of my life," Plessinger said.
"I‰Ûªve been back on a bike now for probably five weeks and I‰Ûªm feeling really good. Yamaha came out before the Florida National and I was able to get some really good testing in. I‰Ûªm really happy with my bike right now. Heading to Southwick, my expectations‰Û_ I really want to get a good start and run with the top guys. I‰Ûªve been practicing my starts this week. I‰Ûªm ready to do some work and looking forward to seeing everybody again.‰Û
