Ryan Morais Anaheim 2 crash update

Anaheim 2 proved to be a tough round for Supercross Lites rider Ryan Morais who crashed during his heat race. Ryan was running in second place in the qualifier until another rider landed on top of him while attempting to triple the last part of the rhythm section before turn six.

Ryan was quickly taken off the track to the Asterisk mobile medical unit, and Ryan was later transported to nearby UCI Medical Center, where he stayed until he was released at approximately 2:30 Sunday morning.

According to the Rockstar Suzuki Supercross Team Manager Bill Keefe, Ryan is currently at home resting, and will be seeing his own physician on Monday for further evaluation. Ryan is not expected to race in the upcoming San Francisco round, but will likely be back on his bike in time for San Diego.

Fellow Supecross Lites-class rider Hunter Hewitt also had a tough night, placing 17th out of 20 in the Lites main event due to a rough start and a crash. Hunter is looking forward to next weekend in San Francisco.

Hunter Hewitt Speaks…

“We won’t have our teammate Ryan with us, but I’ll do everything I can for the team.”

Update: Ryan Morais hopes to return by Anaheim 3

Supercross race action moves to San Francisco’s AT&T Park on January 30th for round 4 of the 2010 series.
