Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Cameron McAdoo has been cleared of major injury following a sizeable crash in the second 250MX moto at Fox Raceway’s finals.

McAdoo returned for the final four Pro Motocross rounds of 2022, previously sidelined from a broken sternum and internal bleeding sustained from the season-opening moto in Pala.

At Fox Raceway 2, McAdoo qualified P17 and finished the first race eighth, running as high as P7 throughout the bout. A much better start in the second moto saw the number 48 slot into third, before a mistake over the Fox triple brought him down in the closing stages and prematurely ended his top-five charge.

“As a racer and a competitor, it is hard to understand that nothing is guaranteed but I’m doing my best to learn/understand that,” shared McAdoo. “Last weekend at Fox Raceway I had a good day going until the last lap of moto two I had a crash on the big jump in the middle and was not able to finish the moto.

“After getting checked out I am okay physically other than a concussion. It is easy to wonder ‘why me’ but I am determined not to have a victim mentality and I will continue the pursuit of bettering myself. I am very happy I was able to race the last four nationals giving me more experience as a racer moving forward.”

Across the final eight motos of season 2022, McAdoo achieved a best result of fourth in race two at Unadilla, with a short rest period now on his agenda following a bruising campaign.
