What a week in the world of off-road – injuries unfortunately dominate our mid week news.
Firstly Broc Tickle was seriously injured at last weeks Toronto Supercross, RCH released a press release which you can read here - apart from the PR nobody seems to know how serious the injury is or how he’s currently doing – lets hope Broc is back on his feet real soon.
**UPDATE** Adam will undergo shoulder surgery and miss the rest of the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross, possibly a good chunk of the outdoor season too.
Such a shame for the young star..

Adam did say this on the Kawasaki press release, ““I’ve injured this shoulder in the past so I know what I need to do to strengthen it and we will do everything we can and will be ready for St. Louis.” Lets hope it isn’t serious and he lines up on Saturday night in St Louis.
Jeffrey Herlings will not race the GP of Brazil as we reported here - this will certainly allow riders to claw back some much needed points on the Dutchman, riders such as our own Max Anstie will be looking for a win as long as doesn’t suffer bike problems like he has in the last few weeks. Ferrandis, Coldenhoff, Febrve and Tonus are the likely riders to feature heavily at this weekends GP in South America.
MX1 World champion Tony Cairoli seems to be the exact opposite to JH84 and looks fighting fit in this cool pic on his Instagram page of him training – looking ripped TC222.
Dean Wilson is now back to Pro Circuit Kawasaki after racing the last few rounds of the Monster Energy Supercross for Chad Reeds team, Dean did a grand job filling in, in a class which is stacked with talent and riders who have been bar banging 450′s all year, I’m sure if Dean has his sights on a 450 ride in 2015, Chad and his team are top of his list.
And finally congrats to this weeks ‘Maxima Oils Rider of the week’ James Stewart.
James won again in Toronto and which resulted in him passing Ricky Carmichael in the all time Supercross win list with 49 victories. JS7 still has a way to go to catch Jeremy Mcgrath who has a massive 72 wins to his career – amazing.
