After a great start in the 2011 AMA SuperSport series at Daytona International Speedway in March, Suzuki Scoop Fans rider Elena Myers has broken her left arm.

The 17-year-old California native fractured her left arm while competing in a Supermoto race Monday at Stockton Motorplex Park, Stockton, Calif.
