AUTOTRADER YOSHIMURA SUZUKI 6th - DECOTIS UPDATE

Team Suzuki Press Office – March 11.



Autotrader/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing riders Weston Peick and Kyle Peters both put in solid sixth-placed finishes in yesterday’s AMA/ FIM Daytona Supercross in Florida in the 450 and 250 class Main Events aboard their RM-Z machinery, but Jimmy Decotis suffered a heavy crash and suffered suspected cracked and broken bones in the 250cc final.

Decotis reported on his Instagram page: “Not the way I wanted to end my night. I had a big crash before the finish line. I''m thankful to be walking. Couple fractures in the L2 and L3 and some broken ribs. Back injuries are scary, so I feel I''m truly blessed with the outcome. Thank you so much @ichorsportsmedicine, Doc Bodner and everyone at the medical unit. You guys are the true heroes of this sport and it''s so awesome to see a friendly face when you are laid up on the ground. I''m extremely bummed right now, I love racing my dirt bike and these next few weeks will be tough. I''m going to see a specialist on Tuesday when I arrive back in Charlotte. I will update everyone on my return as I learn more. The Rippa will be back don''t you worry....”
