Graves/Yamaha Doug Henry Leaves Hospital

Cypress, CA (August 26, 2005) ¿ Graves/Yamaha Factory Supermoto racer Doug Henry checked out of the hospital this morning {Friday August 26th} and will return to his home in Connecticut to begin rehabilitation from injuries suffered at last weekend’s AMA Supermoto race in Colorado.

Fresh off winning X-Games Gold and leading the 2005 AMA Supermoto Series, Henry¿s championship aspirations will be postponed as his injuries, a broken pelvis and shoulder injury, will force him to miss the remaining rounds of the AMA series.

Cards and letters for Doug Henry can be sent to Yamaha Motor Corporation, attn: Racing Department at 6555 Katella Avenue, Cypress, CA.  90630.   Doug plans to appear at the October 1st Supermoto race in Reno, Nevada to sign autographs and greet his fans.
