Following further testing this week, Cameron McAdoo has announced he will miss the rest of the 2024 Monster Energy Supercross season due to a broken scapula and partial tear of a muscle in his shoulder.

McAdoo crashed with Logan Leitzel in qualifying for the Nashville Supercross and still made the main event but was unable to finish the race.

The initial plan was to see if he could still ride this week to make a determination for this weekend’s Philadelphia Supercross, but testing revealed damage that was too much to continue racing through.

“After getting some X-Rays and MRIs this week, we figured out that I ended up breaking my scapula and I have a partial tear on one of the muscles in my shoulder,” said McAdoo. “The good news is that nothing requires surgery. All the ligaments in my shoulder are good. That was one of the biggest concerns for me. That’s the positive of it. Unfortunately, this is going to be the end of my Supercross season.

“As tough of a pill that is to swallow for me, it was such a good year for me too. I was in the points lead, in the points hunt, fighting for race wins. We really enjoyed ourselves and I feel like we made a lot of improvements. We’re going to hang our head high. I’m really excited to go race outdoors. I’m really excited to go race the SMX series and just have the opportunity to do more racing this summer. I can’t wait to be back out there in a few weeks.”

McAdoo went into the Nashville Supercross as the points leader in the 250SX East Championship by four points over Tom Vialle. Following his DNF, McAdoo is currently 16 points behind Vialle which suddenly made the title a longshot with two rounds to go. He made it four laps in the main event before pulling off but had initially crashed on the first lap of the race with teammate Levi Kitchen which put them both way behind the field.

While McAdoo is out, his Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki team announced that Seth Hammaker is returning to racing this weekend in Philadelphia after missing Nashville. McAdoo plans to turn his focus to being ready to go for AMA Pro Motocross which begins on May 25th at Fox Raceway in Pala, California.
