Las Vegas, NV – KTM Factory Junior Team rider Jason Anderson was injured yesterday at the World Mini Grand Prix Amateur National during his Supermini Division race.
Anderson was moving up on the third and fourth place riders on the first lap when the three riders came around a turn and Anderson hit some bad breaking bumps that threw him over the bars. The crash resulted in a broken arm for the New Mexico native.
The KTM Factory Junior Team doctor, Johnathon Edwards, was on hand to assist Anderson. After an analysis from the doctor and a quick trip to the hospital it was determined that Anderson will be out for approximately four weeks. “I’m glad my injury isn’t worse and that I will be healed in time for my Loretta Lynn’s regional,” commented Anderson.
Anderson is part of the six member KTM Factory Junior Team and was a top contender for the championship in each of his classes. “It’s unfortunate that Jason (Anderson) crashed and is now injured, but we are happy that it’s not a bad break and he can take this time to heal and come back even stronger,” remarked KTM Factory Junior Team Manager Al Albiker.
