He had surgery on Wednesday, Feb. 20th in San Diego. Right now, it’s projected to be a six to twelve week recovery time for Mike.

The Amsoil/Dr. Martens/Journeys/Factory Connection Honda team will still be going to the races to represent the team and sign autographs.
In addition to the surgery to repair the dislocated bone, Mike says “I tore the ligaments, but not all the way through, so I got it pinned and they pulled some bone chips out. The doctors all said it was an easy surgery. I’ll be in a cast for a while but plan to be in re-hab right away to help speed the recovery process, about six weeks I hope. I’m definitely bummed – seven years without missing a race. And it’ll be hard to not be there for my teammates and everybody else around me. I want to be out there as bad as everybody wants me to be.”
