After his nasty crash at the opening round of AMA Supercross in Anaheim, Host Grindstone Kawasaki have provided an update on Dylan Walsh’s condition, with him suffering a laceration in his small intestine. Here’s the post below.
“A1 started off well with Dylan showing some good speed in the first practice, but he unfortunately had a crash in the second practice, which resulted in a laceration in his small intestine. He underwent surgery on Saturday night and is now recovering at UCI medical center. He will be there a few more days and then will be able to start his road to recovery in hopes to be healed up and ready to race for the last half of the West Coast rounds. Until then the team Host Grindstone will regroup this week and make some plans for the next rounds to come.”
Walsh posted on social media – Not the way I wanted to start the season. Unfortunately suffered a crash in the first round of qualifying at A1 with the handlebars punching a hole into my intestines which led to internal toxins leaking into my bloodstream. I can’t thank the Alpinestars medical team enough for their quick action and also the staff at UCI Douglas Hospital for performing emergency surgery which I was later told by doctors saved my life. Tough pill to swallow as I was ready to show the 3 months of hard work myself and @hostgrindstonekawasaki put in this off season. Back on the mend now and looking forward to catching the last few races of the season
