Ryan Morais returns for Anaheim 3

Rockstar Energy Suzuki rider Ryan Morais is preparing for his return to racing in the AMA Western Regional Lites class at this Saturday’s Anaheim 3 Supercross.

Ryan had to take some time away from racing after a crash in his heat race at Anaheim 2 resulted in several injuries, including some deep bruising to his kidneys, lungs, and the surrounding muscle fibers.

After participating in an aggressive rehab program for the past two weeks, Ryan is fit enough to train with the team again and remounted his RM-Z250 this week to get in some solid laps on the practice track.

"Ryan’s times were very good, and he looked comfortable on the bike; like he’d never taken any time off." Team Manager Bill Keefe said. "We are excited that he is up to speed and ready to race at Anaheim 3."

Morais missed three races in the series, but finished on the podium everytime he lined up at the starting gate. He’s looking forward to getting back on track in Anaheim and is feeling prepared for the race.
