Luke Clout admits he was conscious of a foot injury on his way to 10th at Glendale, the Australian sustaining a broken toe in the lead up the fourth round of Monster Energy Supercross.

The Penrite Honda Racing entry put in a spirited effort to overcome the injury, recording a 13-12-8 scorecard at State Farm Stadium. He’s no positioned ninth in the 250SX West standings.

“I am bummed I crashed on Friday and broke my toe,” Clout commented. “My foot was extremely sore, I can’t say it affected my riding but I was conscious of it. Another top 10 is good but I am not happy with these overalls.

“I know what I need to work on and I will continue to push forward – having Buddy [Antunez] will make a difference and everyone on the team is working towards a common goal and I appreciate them.”

Fellow Australians Jay Wilson (Yamaha) and Aaron Tanti (Yamaha) finished 15th and 16th overall. Monster Energy Supercross heads to Oakland this weekend for round five of the series.
