Fonseca to sit out Anaheim II

Ernesto Fonseca To Sit Out Round 3 of the AMA / EA Sports Supercross series

Honda Racing’s Ernesto Fonseca crashed in practice last week at the Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA, and sprained his right arm. In the incident, Fonseca’s right elbow ligament was injured causing him to sit out Round 2 in San Diego, and Round 3 in Anaheim, CA.[IMAGE 1]

“The pain wasn’t so bad,” said Fonseca. “I had a tough time with arm pump after the crash and it was difficult controlling the throttle. The doctor decided that we sit out San Diego and Anaheim to let the area heal. I plan on returning to race action in Phoenix, AZ next week.”

Fonseca first injured his right arm in a practice crash sustained while testing a few months ago. Fonseca will be present at this weekend’s Anaheim Supercross and will be signing autographs for his fans.
