Round 12 of the AMA Supercross series will mark the return of Jo Shimoda after a shoulder injury back in January.

Days before the start of the 250SX East Coast Championship, Team Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki announced that Jo Shimoda suffered a shoulder injury. Since then, the Japanese have been sidelined just like his teammates Austin Forkner and Seth Hammaker, who also suffered injuries. Fortunately, he has recovered well and is now ready to do some supercross rounds as a warm-up to the Pro Motocross

Shimoda finished fourth in the 2022 Supercross 250 West division and was second in 2021 points in 250 East. In 2021, Shimoda won his first Supercross race at Salt Lake City. Last year, he scored one podium and six top-fives in nine starts. Shimoda finished second in last year’s outdoor Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season, where he added two more wins including the Unadilla that kicked off a four-race streak of first- or second-place results.
