Highly-rated rookie Jalek Swoll’s first season of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross has ended prematurely after a shoulder injury sidelined him at WW Ranch.

Swoll has endured a difficult first year of 250MX with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna, but did manage to circulate inside of the top 10 for much of moto one last Saturday.

It was at Spring Creek where Swoll hurt his shoulder last month during the first moto, trying to continue in Florida, but ultimately unable to complete the weekend. He will now have it repaired in time for 2021.

“WW Ranch was my last round in Pro Motocross,” he revealed. “I’m going into off-season early to get my shoulder fixed up and ready for next season, but on the positive side I ran top 10 for over half the moto and was feeling solid until the shoulder had enough. It is what it is, will come out swinging year two.”

Despite his difficulties outdoors, where he has achieved a best individual moto finish of 15th at RedBud, Swoll impressed earlier this year in Monster Energy Supercross on his way to seventh in 250SX East.
