While running third during his heat race in last weekend’s 450cc Monster Energy AMA SuperCross action in St. Louis’ Edward Jones Dome, Wil Hahn suffered a crash which knocked him unconscious.
He was taken to Barnes Jewish Hospital where he was diagnosed with a broken right humorous as well as neck and shoulder contusions and is expected to miss several weeks.
CycleNews.com reports that, according to a spokesman for the GEICO Honda team, Wil Hahn broke his humerus in four places and suffered a cracked skull.
However, Hahn has taken to social media over the past couple of days and produced a couple of promising pieces of news for his fans:
