Chase Sexton has released a lengthy statement about what happened in Minneapolis, the concussion protocol and where he is at now. The concussion protocol is obviously a serious matter. However, taking everything into consideration, it seems extremely unlikely that anything is going to stop him from missing the eighth stop of 2022 Monster Energy Supercross this weekend.
“Hey guys, as most of you know I had a crash with a little over a lap left in the main event this weekend. It was obviously not ideal – I felt good all day. I was good in practice and good in the heat race, but just a small mistake with a little over a lap left put me on the ground. It was unfortunate. I have just got to move on, like I said I was feeling really good on the bike. I have still got that confidence in me, so I am excited to keep progressing. I had a little bit of a hard time getting back up on my feet and the doctors put me on concussion protocol, which I am following now. I had a meeting with a neurologist today and he is letting me ease back into training. Hopefully by this weekend I’ll be 100%. I did a little bike ride today, which was good, and to get back to training was nice. I am just looking forward to getting back to the races. Hopefully we can go out there this weekend, put on a good show, get back to where we were this weekend and finish it off.”
