Tyla Rattray broke his thumb at the Red Bud National Motocross last Saturday. He will have the thumb surgically repaired today, with a pin put in to secure the thumb. It is expected that Tyla will be out of action for 2 races, and hopefully will be ready for action again at the last 4 rounds of the series.
Tyla said “I obviously feel very disappointed, I really liked the Red Bud track and I was feeling the best I have all season in that second race. I was making a lot of passes and riding with a lot of momentum, and I was just going forward so easily. I don’t know what happened really, I think I must have hit some big braking bumps wrong and got thrown over the bars pretty hard. The medics at the track took some x-rays and they say my thumb is broken. I saw a specialist to see what the extent of the injury is and how long the recovery time will be. It’s just a pity because I feel like was starting to figure things out and getting better for the 2nd half of the season. I hate injuries. but I guess they are just part of the sport. I will keep me head up, keep working hard and come back strong again as soon as I can.”
