Hahn & Baggett: Crash & Injury Report

Motocross News

Rockstar Energy Suzuki team took to the dirt on Saturday at the famous Budds Creek Motocross Park in Mechanicsville, MD, and each racer was looking to build on the momentum that they had generated in the last few races.

Tommy Hahn qualified in the top ten in the 450 class and got off to a strong start in the first moto, but a crash late in the race left him with a separated shoulder and dropped him back to a 38th place finish for moto 1. Tommy may have been down, but he certainly wasn’t out.

Hahn rallied during the second moto aboard his RM-Z450 despite the obvious pain he was in, and placed just outside the top ten.

Tommy’s performance during moto 2 was enough to earn him 19th overall, and gave him 10 valuable points toward the championship. He is currently eighth in the race for the 2010 title, and is looking forward to the next race at Thunder Valley in Colorado. “I’ll be back and ready to ride next week,” said Hahn.

Hahn’s 250-class teammate Blake Baggett also suffered a stroke of bad luck at Budds Creek. Blake struck a rock on the step-down before the finish during the second practice, which caused him to crash.

The crash broke his left humerus, the bone that connects the shoulder to the elbow, and he was unable to compete as a result of his injury.

Blake underwent surgery on Saturday night to repair the damage, and met with his personal doctor today. Fellow 250-racer Hunter Hewitt carried on for the team, and placed 14th overall after going 17-14 in the motos.

The next round of the 2010 AMA Pro Motocross championship will take place at Thunder Valley Motocross Park in Lakewood, Colorado, and Rockstar Energy Suzuki’s Jake Moss will be making his return to racing in the 450 class.

Jake has spent the last two weeks recovering from the concussion he suffered at Freestone, but he is now back on his bike and ready to race.

“I’ve been practicing hard while I was out,” said Moss. “I’m hungry now. I want to get out there and win.”
