Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Adam Monea has been forced out of this weekend’s Terex Australian Supercross Championship after dislocating his shoulder in testing this week.
The talented Victorian, who was a revelation during the MX Nationals aboard the KX450F, sustained the injury yesterday according to Kawasaki, delaying his ASX debut in Pro Open.
“We’re all really disappointed that Adam can’t race in Darwin,” team manager Troy Carroll said. “He was injured during the teams final testing with him. We’ll know whether he’ll be able to race any rounds after some more scans next week.”
Coming off the back of a championship victory in 2012 with Jay Marmont, Carroll has confidence that the 30-year-old can once again bounce back from a disastrous outdoor campaign.
“We’re really excited to be back racing Supercross,” Carroll added. “Jay has been testing and training well and Supercross really is his forte so we’re looking for a great result.”
The 2013 Terex Australian Supercross Championship will commence tomorrow in the first of two rounds to be contested at Darwin’s Hidden Valley Raceway this weekend.
