Yoshimura Suzuki Racing’s Brett Metcalfe Out For Season

CHINO, CA (June 29, 2012) – Team Yoshimura Suzuki Racing’s Brett Metcalfe underwent surgery this morning as a result of injuries sustained in a practice crash at Glen Helen Raceway yesterday morning. The 28-year old Australian crashed hard in a rhythm section at the San Bernardino, CA track resulting in a broken tibia and fibula as well as a dislocated wrist. Metcalfe will miss the remaining seven rounds of the 2012 AMA Pro Motocross Championship.

“We are all saddened that Metty’s season came to an end like this,” said Team Yoshimura Suzuki Manager, Mike Webb. “He has been so solid all year and lately has been gaining great momentum in the outdoors – We all certainly expected podium results throughout these last rounds. It’s a shame he won’t be able to realize those goals. Metty and his wife Sheena are expecting their first child in August and we will help and support Brett and Sheena in any way possible.”

Metcalfe moved into the top five in the overall championship points standings after picking up another top-10 finish at Budds Creek two weeks ago. Teammate James Stewart will be back under the Yoshimura Suzuki tent when the series returns at the RedBud National in Buchanan, MI on July 7th.
