Triumph Racing has confirmed Jalek Swoll will be fit to line up at this weekend’s Daytona Supercross following his crash in Arlington.

Swoll rode the all-new TF 250-X to fifth in his heat race, before a crash in the opening stages of the 250SX East main event effectively ended his night.

“It was a rough weekend, but focusing on the positives Jalek did well on the day and improved every time he got out on the bike,” reflected Bobby Hewitt, Triumph Racing team principal. “He’s riding better and the bike is much better – the break from the first round to here did us well and we used that time to make some improvements with the bike.”

The team received positive news this week when Swoll was declared okay to continue racing in Daytona, avoiding injury and enabling Triumph Racing to continue its development process. Unfortunately for teammate Evan Ferry, his press day incident will keep him sidelined for longer.

“After Saturday’s heavy crash in the main, Jalek has had the all-clear and will be back behind the gate in Daytona,” the team confirmed. “After further checks, Evan has been diagnosed with a grade one shoulder separation. The Florida native will undergo a few weeks of rehab, with the aim of returning to action in Foxborough.”
