Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s RJ Hampshire crashed late in the first 250 moto at round 2 of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross at Hangtown and was unable to line up for the second moto.
Hampshire released an update on his Instagram account today and it looks like he’s going to miss some time.
Not the post I wanted to make.
Had a crash the first moto with a few laps to go, I was hurting but didn’t think it was too bad. Turns out I was wrong. I landed on one of those stakes on the side of the track and it went under my arm pit, through my rib cage and cut the top of my right lung. I had surgery Saturday once I got to the hospital. They cleaned the cut up and placed a chest tube in to keep my lung from collapsing. I had to spend a couple nights in the hospital because of the tube but looks like I’ll be out of here soon. It sounds gnarly but the good news is that it won’t take long to heal up! Be back soon
