Maximus Vohland announced this afternoon he will not return to racing for the remainder of the 2024 Monster Energy Supercross Championship as he continues to deal with complications arising from dislocating his hip in a practice crash in January.

The Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki rider was injured in the crash which happened between the second and third rounds of the series as he was preparing for the San Diego Supercross. This is the second dislocated hip Vohland has suffered in his career and the initial hopes were that surgery would get him back to racing quickly. However, complications from that surgery have pushed his timetable to return back beyond the end of the Monster Energy Supercross season for now.

“In late January, I experienced a crash leading to a hip dislocation, which required surgical intervention to get it back in place,” Vohland explained in an Instagram post. “Complications from surgery have significantly hindered my recovery process. As a result, I am unable to participate in the remaining SX rounds. I am fully committed to my rehab and aim to return as soon as possible.”

Vohland, 21, signed a one year deal with Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki prior to 2024 after spending the first three years of his professional career with Red Bull KTM. He won the opening heat race of the year for 250SX West and nearly landed on the podium that same evening, before his season was over just 10 days later.

The AMA Pro Motocross Championship kicks off on May 25th at Fox Raceway in Pala, California, just two weeks after the end of Monster Energy Supercross. Vohland is eyeing a return to racing as soon as possible.
