Torrance, CA (July 2, 2012): Team Honda Muscle Milk's Sayaka Kaneshiro was involved in a practice accident on Wednesday, June 27, while preparing for the 2012 X-Games, sustaining injuries to both wrists and an ankle. Kaneshiro underwent successful surgery on Thursday June 28th, but the injuries she sustained will ultimately knock her out of the Women's Motocross Championship for the rest of the 2012 season.

Kaneshiro is currently sitting third in points after posting some of her career-best finishes this season. She finished third in moto two at Thunder Valley, and grabbed her first-ever overall podium finish at High Point with a third place finish.
