Cameron Mcadoo is out for Glendale. Cade Clason is a TBC at this point.

It’s Glendale for a triple crown this Saturday in Monster Energy Supercross. Finally! A week off in the mid-season for some reason seems to feel like a month for us fans.

It probably feels like a few days for the riders and team as many of them are out testing outdoor settings already in this time off.

But This week for Supercross brings some excitement with Glendale. Probably the biggest floor space of any venue on the circuit in a stadium. Along with a triple crown format. What’s not to like?

Injuries a plenty from the last round in Seattle and those are listed below but there have been a few late withdrawals from practice crashes this week as well.

Cameron Mcadoo is out for Glendale. Cade Clason is a TBC at this point. A broken rib and a collapsed lung confirmed with Cade that would usually see him out for 4-6 weeks. But his cryptic response about him missing races has me thinking Cade is a possibility for this weekend’s race. That might change after he does free practice and the pain and shortness of breath kicks in but we will wait and see I guess.

The Pro Circuit Kawasaki injury list is almost unbelievable this year. With Mcadoo out. He now joins all of his teammates as having been injured in the time from Late December to now. Even fill-in rider Carson Mumford got injured but thankfully returned last week as Pro Circuit would have been without a rider this weekend. Fingers crossed for the other fill-in rider on the East Coast Chris Blose. He is literally the last man standing, or swinging both arms however you want to look at it.

Results wise. Eli Tomac and Cooper Webb are heading into this weekend tied and both will run the red plate. With only 6 rounds remaining things are tight at the top of the 450 class.

In the 250’s. Can we finally see Jett Lawrence resolve his issues with the triple crown format on the longer and usually bigger Glendale track? Or will he have another haphazard triple crown result? I know I will be watching with interest.

In other Injury updates. On the AlwaysMoto podcast this week we caught up with Justin Rodbell on his recovery from his Achilles Tendon Rupture in November 2022. He is back on the bike and working towards a return to Outdoors. watch the interview on youtube below.
