Team Yamaha’s Broc Hepler suffered a scary crash during practice at Anaheim 1 and suffered what was suspected to be a broken collarbone. BHep blasted a few text messages our way to let us know he is okay.
“I’m okay, I just have a broken collarbone,” he said. “I am going to see my doctor tomorrow. It’s not bad enough to require plating, but there is a chance I might still have it plated if it will help me heal faster. I wasn’t knocked out like some people said, I was just laying there, hurting. I got the wind knocked out of me. I was laying there and I was like, ‘I can’t get up!’ and I would hear bikes coming. I was like, ‘this one is gonna hit me,’ and then I’d go, ‘whew! that one missed!'”
Get well soon, Broc!
