Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Martin Davalos will miss this weekend’s Toronto, Canada, round of the 2016 Monster Energy AMA Supercross series due to ‘personal issues’.

It’s Eastern Regional 250SX opening round winner and current points leader from Ecuador has encountered visa issues travelling outside of the US, opting to sit out Toronto’s stop on the schedule.

The current red-plate holder will return for the Detroit round in hope of continuing his chase for the 250 regional championship on board the FC250.

It’s also been confirmed that Christophe Pourcel sustained an injury in practice earlier this week, which will require him to remain sidelined for seven to 10 days. He’s also due to return in Detroit.
