Cypress CA – Yamaha Factory racer Broc Hepler will miss the Atlanta
Supercross, the opening round of the East Coast Lites Supercross
season. During a recent practice session at the Yamaha Supercross
track, Broc crash-landed from a large obstacle and sustained a
concussion. This week, after consulting with his doctors, Broc, his
family and Team Yamaha determined that Broc will not race until his
condition is 100%.
“It’s a disappointment for Broc and his many fans,” explained Yamaha
Team Manager Jim Perry. “Broc ended last year’s National season on high
note, winning three of the last four races. This year, he looked
incredible on his YZ250F at our practice track, and in my opinion, was
a favorite to win the East Championship this year.”
Yamaha will update Broc’s condition and possible return date as he moves forward with his recovery.
