Nate Thrasher & Michael Mosiman sidelined for remainder of AMA Pro Motocross

Mosiman seattle 24

Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing’s Michael Mosiman and Nate Thrasher will be sidelined in the upcoming months to focus on returning to full fitness from their respective injuries.

Right before the opening round of the outdoor season, Mosiman sustained fractures in his neck in a crash while preparing for the Fox Raceway National. The Californian will sit out the Pro Motocross season with an anticipated return to riding in 12 weeks.

Michael Mosiman: “It’s super disappointing to get injured so close to the start of the outdoor season, especially feeling as good as I was. The team had put in so many hard hours to give me the best bike possible, and I hadn’t felt that comfortable and confident in a long time. It’s heart-wrenching for us both to have put in so much work and not be able to show what I can do at the races. That being said, God has never wasted any of my injuries in the past, and I’m confident he won’t let this setback go to waste. In times like these, it always makes me think about how crazy the story is going to be and how much sweeter it will make the victories ahead. Thank you to Bobby Regan and everyone at Star Yamaha for continuing to support and believe in me despite this challenge.”

His teammate Thrasher was also injured while preparing for an outdoor national, breaking his collarbone and bending the plate from a previous repair. The Tennessee rider underwent surgery yesterday to repair the injury and aims to return to riding in eight to 10 weeks.

Nate Thrasher: “It’s not how we wanted things to go this season, but we’re looking ahead. I had the surgery yesterday, and I’m ready to start the recovery process and to be 100% healthy.”

Their teammate Stilez Robertson also continues to work on returning to full fitness after breaking his arm in the off-season.
