Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Zach Osborne was injured in training this week, forcing him out of upcoming Monster Energy AMA Supercross rounds.

Osborne suffered a broken rib, two bruised lungs and a sprained wrist, with his return to racing yet to be determined.

“I’m really gutted with the timing of this incident, but very grateful that my injuries were minor considering the hit that I took,” Osborne said.

“It’s been a very tough start to the season for me and my team has been so awesome in picking me back up as they always do. This is just a bump in the road and I will be back as soon as I’m back to 100 percent and can reach my full potential again.”

Osborne had been on the rise during the middle stages of the season, finishing fifth last weekend in Arlington – his third top five result of 2020. He is currently ranked ninth in the standings.
