Lengthy recovery time sets JGRMX Suzuki signing for return.
JGRMX Yoshimura Suzuki recruit Joey Savatgy has been cleared to return to riding this week, four months on from his incident at the AUS-X Open off-season race in Australia.
Savatgy sustained a serious heel injury in practice at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium, sidelined ever since as he works toward a return to competition.
“We got the X-rays this morning, I sent them to my doctor and he has cleared me,” Savatgy explained. “We’re officially cleared to get back into the saddle and start riding.
“It’s ‘only’ taken a little over 16 weeks, so it’s been a long, long journey. I appreciate the support, it means a lot. I’m hungry and excited to get back into the groove, shake the cobwebs off and get back to work.”
With Monster Energy Supercross suspended at this point as a result of COVID-19 and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross scheduled to begin in mid-June, the opportunity for Savatgy to prepare and return for the back-half of the season continues to elevate.
