Updates: RJ Hampshire

If there is one positive in the current COVID-19 situation, it is that riders who are currently dealing with injuries have a chance to get healthy again. RJ Hampshire was dealing with an injury that no one even knew about – the plan was to keep it that way until the end of 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross. The shake-up in the current schedule has forced him to undergo surgery on a torn ACL prematurely, however, with an eye on being ready to race in 2021. The news was announced via this statement.

“Wish I didn’t have to make this post. I didn’t say much about it for many reasons… Back in December I dabbed my knee coming into a corner and the handlebar came down right on top. I completely tore my ACL, multiple tears in my meniscus and a fractured tibia. For myself, missing supercross was not an option after the work and changes we made. I didn’t miss a day of riding and did everything I could to get it where I was happy going into round one. The beating it took on race day was much worse than the practice days.

“I was set on getting it fixed at the end of outdoors, but now with the rest of supercross getting moved until later in the year and the uncertainty of when motocross is starting that wasn’t gonna happen. I had surgery early this week to repair the knee! A big thank you to Dr. Bowman and Vanderbilt Orthopaedics for getting me in during these times and understanding the urgency, I know it wasn’t easy. The recovery has started and will be looking forward to getting back to the races!”

Third is the position that RJ Hampshire currently occupies in the 250SX East standings. Eighteen points separate him from the current series leader, Chase Sexton.

Cancellation: Indianapolis

Subscribe to MX Vice on YouTube.

MX Vice has just received communication from Feld Entertainment that confirms that the eleventh round of 2020 Monster Energy Supercross, Indianapolis, has been cancelled. This is obviously a last-minute decision – the race is just over a day away – but concerns over the COVID-19 virus have heightened across the United States in the last twenty-four hours. The thirteenth round, Seattle, has already been cancelled. There’s no word on the twelfth race that’s supposed to be run in Detroit next week.

It seems that all tickets purchased on Ticketmaster will automatically be refunded. More information is expected to surface in the coming days.
