I think the rules need to be changed. I don’t think you should be able to defend a title in the 250 class unless you have only been in the class 2 years. I also think it should be for 25 and under. They need to add another class or send the guys who can’t get a ride to arenacross.
Or I would really like to see 250 West veteran riders and 250 east rookies with up to 3 years experience. If you win then you move up. East riders can race a few races in the west. West riders aren’t aloud to ride the east once they have 3 years or are over 25.

No he didn't!

Wait, now I'm arguing with myself smile.

Actually after re-watching the clip, I'd say "No contact". Forkner tried to pass Osborne on the left, and there wasn't room. Osborne went a bit wide and Forkner exited the track to avoid a crash with Osborne. Then crashed. Bummer.

WOW, talk about tucking in. A little luck and he would have popped right up and kept going!

The way he was holding his arm looked like a possible broken Radius or Ulna

Crashfest all night for him... lucky it's just a collar bone.

Dowd?

Brown?

Vohland?

Dowd? Yes, he didn't start until his late 20's. Not a factory rider from amateurs on. Brown is a good example though

Any relation to Duddly?

Any word 100% on what his injury is?.

He has gotta be out for the SX season. Or at least I’d hope he is if he didn’t get up and finish the race. Sucks for sure. Hope he can be back in time for round 1 of MX.

So you’re glad he took himself out . . . ? I, for one, like Forkner. At least he’s willing to get up there and race for the win. Someone needs to make Osborne earn it.

Gawwd, some of the people on here blink

Yes, I’m glad he took only himself out and not Osborne with him. He’s very fast, but I feel like Forkner rides with disregard for everyone else on the track. His attitude consistently puts me off, whether he’s celebrating a win or blaming someone else for not winning. Guess you could call me “not a fan” at this point.

That's what I was thinking. A fractured clavicle is about the least invasive injury you can have to the shoulder/shoulder girdle. Although, I suspect you could throw in a concussion....something that AF has recent and severe experience with. I wouldn't doubt it if he has a laundry list of strains and contusions as well.

Not sure what to make of this kid yet. Extremely talented yet mistake prone.... at least last night he was. He gets right up and going again though. Frequent spills and dirt dives gets old quick at this level of racing. Hope he heals up quick!

I saw he posted to the Gram that he should be back on the bike this week. I broke my collarbone the same day as Forkner and I haven't even seen my doctor since surgery, lol.

I see you learned cause and effect. The amount of money you can spend directly correlates to how well you get treated. lol

Same thing with my wrist. Weimer broke his a week before me and raced this weekend. I can't even move my wrist 50% of what it was yet.
