JGR Yamaha’s Josh Grant was injured yesterday while practicing at a private facility near Temecula, California, the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, title contender suffering a broken nose and bruising in a crash while testing Supercross.
Grant crashed negotiating a difficult whoop section and was thrown off the bike into an embankment. His condition will be evaluated by his doctor daily and he hopes to be released and on the gate at Angel Stadium this Saturday in Anaheim for the opening round of the 2010 championship.
Grant, who won the first round of the series last year in Anaheim, is a determined competitor who has raced many times while recovering from injury, however, the decision to race will be made by both he and his doctor. Josh will attend the pre-series press conference scheduled for tomorrow at noon (PST) at Angel Stadium, set to be broadcast live on the official series website to Supercross Live members.
