Team Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Ben Townley just phoned the TransWorld Motocross offices and confirmed the rumors that he has sustained an injury that will likely bring an early end to his 2006 season.
“I don’t want to say too much about it, because we will be issuing a press release shortly, said Townley. “It looks like I have separated my shoulder. I am getting it checked out by a specialist today.
Townley had just returned to action at the July 2 Red Bud MX National, where he finished fifth overall with 8-3 moto scores. “I was disappointed with eighth in the first moto, obviously, but third in the second go-round was more satisfying, he said. “I am very disappointed to have my season come to an end again with only one race under my belt.
Stay tuned for the press release and more details…
