BREAKING: RJ Hampshire OUT for Pro Motocross season opener


Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider RJ Hampshire has unfortunately been sidelined ahead of Round 1 of the 2024 AMA Pro Motocross Championship in Pala, California, after injuring his wrist during media day on Thursday afternoon.

The 28-year-old, fresh from capturing the 250SX West Championship in AMA Supercross two weeks ago, underwent immediate surgery yesterday evening, but it remains unclear when he will be fit to return to the 11-round outdoor series.

Hampshire joins to the injury list such as Pro Circuit Kawasaki riders Austin Forkner, Cameron McAdoo, Max Vohland and Seth Hammaker, as well as Star Racing Yamaha duo Michael Mosiman and Stilez Robertson.

On the other hand, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing looks forward to welcoming RJ back once he is back to 100 percent health. The team will field Malcolm Stewart and Christian Craig in 450MX, as well as rookie Casey Cochran in 250MX, at this Saturday’s season-opening Fox Raceway National.
