Irvine, Calif. (May 26, 2005) ¿ Team Monster/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider Grant Langston plans to compete at the Kawasaki/Monster Energy National at High Point Raceway in Mt. Morris, Pa., this weekend. Langston dislocated his left ankle during a dramatic crash on the last turn of the second 125 moto at Hangtown, but remounted his Kawasaki KX¿250F and won the race in heroic fashion. Langston was evaluated by physicians earlier this week and it was determined that the injury will not require surgery. After a few days of rest and rehabilitation, Langston is determined to show up at High Point and race for another 125 overall title.
¿I¿m planning to show up and give it a shot no matter what happens,¿ said Langston. ¿I feel good and the ankle is getting better, so I¿m going to go out there and give it 100%.¿
