Weston Peick Injury Update

During round two of the 2015 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship in Phoenix, JGRMX Yamaha’s Weston Peick was hungry for points, wanting to improve on his seventh-place finish at the Anaheim 1 season opener.

The Yamaha YZ-F 450 pilot was quick off the start at Chase Field in Phoenix, and got pass Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey on the second lap to slip into third. The two battled, but Dungey would get by when Peick cased a triple jump, breaking a bone in his foot. Though in pain, Peick completed the race in fourth – his career best.

Following the race, JGRMX Yamaha provided an update:

“An initial evaluation at the Asterisk Mobile Medical Center determined there was a break, and a subsequent MRI and further analysis led to Peick having a screw inserted to stabilize the broken bone,” JGRMX reports.

The team says Peick is “determined to do his best to race” this Saturday at Anaheim II in Angel Stadium.

After two of 17 rounds, Peick is fifth overall in the point standings with 32, 15 behind leader Ken Roczen (RCH Suzuki).
