A clash with a downed lapped rider resulted in multiple broken fingers for Cameron McAdoo in Colorado, sidelining him for this Saturday’s Lucas Oil Pro Motocross finals at Fox Raceway.

McAdoo was in 10th position during the closing stages of moto one at Thunder Valley when he made contact with the crashed rider’s bike and ending his day.

It’s not expected that McAdoo’s recovery time will take long, however, it’s still a disappointing way to wrap up the year after Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki has been struck by injuries throughout the entire season.

“Unfortunately, on the last lap of moto one, a lapper went down right in front of me and I was hit by his bike, which resulted in breaking three fingers on my right hand,” McAdoo revealed post-race.

“The good news is that I should heal well with just a couple weeks of rest. I can’t thank my Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki team enough for sticking behind me. This is obviously not the way I wanted to end my season, but I’m grateful it’s not worse and should heal quickly.”

McAdoo is still eighth in the 250MX championship with a single round remaining, but could be shuffled outside of the top 10 this weekend. Pro Circuit fill-in Mitchell Harrison sits directly behind him in points, just two points in arrears.
