Mosiman and Thrasher injury update

Star Yamaha have released the following system on the health of their riders, Michael Mosiman and Nate Thrasher.

Rider Update: Michael Mosiman and Nate Thrasher focused on returning to full fitness after being sidelined with practice crash injuries. Mosiman will be sidelined for the Pro Motocross season.

Mosiman commented: “It’s super disappointing to get injured so close to the start of the outdoor season, especially feeling as good as I was. The team had put in so many hard hours to give me the best bike possible, and I hadn’t felt that comfortable and confident in a long time. It’s heart-wrenching for us both to have put in so much work and not be able to show what I can do at the races. That being said, God has never wasted any of my injuries in the past, and I’m confident he won’t let this setback go to waste.

“In times like these, it always makes me think about how crazy the story is going to be and how much sweeter it will make the victories ahead. Thank you to Bobby Regan and everyone at Star Yamaha for continuing to support and believe in me despite this challenge.” – @_michaelmosiman

Thrasher underwent surgery yesterday and aims to return to riding in eight to 10 weeks.

Thrasher said: “It’s not how we wanted things to go this season, but we’re looking ahead. I had the surgery yesterday, and I’m ready to start the recovery process and to be 100% healthy.”
