RCH Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s Justin Bogle will return to the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship this weekend in Atlanta following a night-ending crash at round seven.

Despite taking a hard hit after going over the handlebars during his semi final 450SX race in Minneapolis, the 2014 East Coast 250SX champion confirms it’s just bumps and bruises following a hospital check up.

“I came up short in that rhythm section, went over the bars, and that was the end of my night,” said Bogle. “We were having a good day and I felt good on the bike.

“I just missed my mark through that section and it bit me, I went to the hospital and everything checked out fine, I’m just sore. We’ll be ready for Atlanta on Saturday.”

Bogle’s Minneapolis incident marks his second spectacular crash of the 2017 season after an Anaheim 2 fall saw him forced out of round four in Phoenix due to chest and lung injuries.
