The guy went down VERY hard in practice and is rumored to be very injured. Why hasn’t there been anything today? Race being in FELD’s backyard have anything to do with it?

He just crashed this afternoon.

Could be a myriad of reasons. Maybe the team hasn't released info, maybe there's a gazillion other things to cover, maybe they forgot.

Oh no... Man that sucks
I was hoping he just sit out because he was a little banged up after that crash. Never knew he crashed that hard.
What a shame. Hope he can come back soon and prove himself in the US. He doesn't have much time and he doesn't have the credentials yet to be hired by another team when his contract runs out

I was just about to post something similar. Moreau got a one year deal right? His SX career could be over before it ever begun...

That is good news.

Edit: Just to clarify, the two year deal is good news. The injury is horrible and lets hope that the news are positive when we hear more.

Initial “prognosis” floating around the pits last night wasn’t good on his condition...

Fingers crossed for the kid.

|

2/16/2020 5:59 AM

Well that doesn’t sound good ML. I really hope the kid makes a full recovery whatever it is

|

2/16/2020 6:01 AM

SX is such an unforgiving sport. Hopefully he recovers from his injury.

|

2/16/2020 6:18 AM

I hope next year he performs well, but if he doesn't, french fans are really going to be angry. He is seen as a big potential with a lot of talent, but did nothing impressing in mxgp and still hasn't proven anything in Supercross

“Good morning all.
We wanted to let you know about Brian's condition.

Brian was operated on his vertebrae last night at the Tampa Hospital. The operation went well and Brian woke up well. He is currently in intensive care, but the doctors will only be able to comment on his state of health in several days…
Brian is a very brave and strong boy and is aware of everything! 💪

We would like to thank everyone who supports us.

Obviously I do not thank the people who on the other hand still allow themselves to criticize it in such moments!

We will keep you informed when we know more.

Moreau family… ”

Feld's proximity has nothing to do with it. The usual things about a spinal injury, and not knowing the outcome until swelling goes down have everything to do with it.

Spinal injuries do not work on any internet time schedule.

Terrible news. Keeping my fingers crossed he will make a full recovery. This sport really sucks sometimes.

Having just had a fusion from a burst L1 this does not sound good based on these reports. I dodged a bullet hoping the best for the kid.

2/16/2020 7:09 PM

Fucking hell. It’s why we hate and love this sport all at once. Hope to see a full recovery.

|

2/16/2020 7:24 PM

Hoping this kid gets a full recovery. These are the times I hate the sport. Damn.

If I'm correct, something went wrong while tripling a jump. He got ejected from the bike, head first into the take off of the next jump. His own body weight and probably some g-forces (from the speed of the crash) putting pressure on his head and spine.

Thats how I've understood it, reading the story on Le Big.

Let send positive thoughts to Brian and his family. Wishing him a full recovery.
