Austin Forkner vanished during the opening 250MX moto at Southwick, then later appeared in hospital on social media. It was unclear just how serious the issue was at the time but, thankfully, '24' has taken to his accounts to confirm that everything checked out okay.
"So seems like I need to practice just getting through the first turn from how the past couple races have went," he begun on Instagram. "Had a big one later in the moto and tweaked my neck so had to go to the hospital, but checked out ok so just really sore today. We'll be good for Millville."
After failing to score any points at round seven of twelve, Austin Forkner slipped to eighth in the 250MX standings with one hundred and eighty-four points. The Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki rider has finished on the podium in five of the motos that have been run this season.
