JGRXMX Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s Jeremy Albrecht has given the following information on Peick – who was seriously injured in the Bercy Supercross, in Paris, in November 2018 – and he has just started riding again.
Also he has an update on Reed (pictured above), who rejoined Suzuki full-time for the start of the 2019 AMA Supercross season – and who was running in the top six until a heavy crash at the Seattle SX in March. Reed is hoping his eight broken ribs, broken scapula and collapsed lung will be all healed before the SX season finale on May 4th in Las Vegas that he hopes to race at.
“Weston rode for the first time since his accident this past week at Milestone,” said Albrecht.
“He still has very limited vision in his one eye, so the first time out was a challenge. However, he is going to ride several more times before he and the team decide if he is capable of racing the Nationals. Weston has been keeping up in his off-the-bike training.
“It’s just a matter of whether his bad eye will improve.
“Chad is wearing a sling for his broken scapula, but that’s really more for prevention than anything. His eight broken ribs are healing nicely and don’t seem to bother him too much. He’s still blowing into the breathing tester after his collapsed lung. Chad still plans on racing Las Vegas, but that remains to be seen until more time has passed.”
