Corona, Calif. (January 31, 2012) – Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Tyla Rattray was injured during his heat race at the Oakland round of the Monster Energy Supercross. Rattray was unable to race the remainder of the evening due to his injury.
Upon further evaluation by his physician, it has been determined that Rattray suffered a concussion and a fracture to his C7 vertebrae. He will be recuperating for the next few weeks, at which time his injuries will be re-evaluated. The team will make another announcement about his recovery at that time.
“I'm really bummed out about my injury," said Rattray, "but I'm very thankful that it didn't end up worse. I just want to thank everyone for their tremendous support. Hopefully I'll be back soon.”
