Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Colton Haaker Out For Endurocross Season

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Colton Haaker will be relinquishing his fight for the 2017 Endurocross Championship. Due to an injury sustained at the beginning of the Endurocross season, Haaker will undergo a minor surgery to remove the Bursa Sac in his elbow and clean up the remaining of an existing staph infection. Doctors are unsure of the recovery time needed, but Haaker stated “I am looking to be 100% in time to defend my 2017 SuperEnduro World Championship title.”

This is a bummer. More of a Webb fan, but the racing between these two has been great.

I love his style and hate for anyone to be hurt, but he was his own worst enemy those 1st few races. He was like a demolition derby.

Did you watch his vlog from Straight Rhythm? His elbow looked like he had an elbow pad on under his jersey. It was nasty. He's definitely tougher than I am.

Yeah, bummer. It seems like a two-rider show, and now one's out.

I had bursitis a year ago (from bumping down the highway with my elbow on the armrest of my truck), and that elbow is just now getting so that it's not super-tender. I can't imagine trying to do what he does with it inflamed.

Didn't watch his blog but how about that shoulder block he put on that tractor tire at the Everett round. Brutal!
