Arnaud Tonus started at the front of the pack in the 250 Main Event at the 2016 Detroit SX, but a crash in the whoops during the middle of the race forced the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider to DNF. It looked as though Tonus had sustained an arm injury in the crash and he was helped off by the Asterisk Medical crew.
On Wednesday afternoon, nearly two weeks since the crash, Tonus announced via Instagram that he dislocated his shoulder. The caption on his post is very simple, but states that he’ll do what he can to be ready for the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship that starts in May. So, it seems that his Supercross season is over.
Tonus has been in the United States for two years, as the Swiss-born rider left the MXGP scene for his current Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki contract. He spent almost all of 2015 on the sidelines due to a serious illness. 2016 is the final year of his deal with the PC team.
A former winner in the MXGP MX2 division, Tonus could be one to watch during the summer series.
