Sexton out of Pala
Is there going to be any factory riders left by the final round? Chase Sexton has been added to the long list of 450 factory stars absent for the last couple of rounds of the US Nationals with the young factory Honda star forced out due to an enlarged spleen.
He said on social media: “Unfortunately I will not be lining up tomorrow for round 11 of @promotocross . After tests and an ultrasound this week I have found that I have an enlarged spleen and that it wouldn’t be safe to race with it. I’m gutted not to be able to race and see all you California fans. Further updates will be coming soon thank you for the support.”
Sexton now adds his name to a long list of absentees that includes, Musquin, Anstie, Craig, Anderson, Wilson, Osborne and Cianciarulo who are all out due to illness or injury.
