At Saturday’s 250SX East Predicament Championship kickoff in Michigan, the Muc-Off/FXR/ClubMX Yamaha group experienced every the highs and the lows that supercross brings.
In free notice, supercross rookie Jett Reynolds suffered a crash and damage that would knock him out for the remainder of the day. At first reported as a fractured collarbone by Steve Matthes, the ClubMX group confirmed Reynolds suffered an AC separation in his shoulder.

He’s anticipated to rehab and hopes to be ready for the next 250SX East Predicament breeze in Arlington, Texas, on February 24.

The group sent out an exchange this morning, pointing out that Martin suffered a gradual concussion but is otherwise okay. The #6 will enter concussion protocol but he is waiting for to breeze the Arlington Supercross as properly.
I wrote in Saturday night’s put up-breeze recap:
“As if that changed into once now not sufficient of a success for the Yamaha-mounted group, Jeremy Martin had a laborious and upsetting crash on the final lap of his warmth breeze.
