Josh Hansen has today released a statement to explain that he will be unable to compete at X Games this weekend.

Hansen was involved in a road traffic collision on the morning of May 22 near his home in Temecula, California. The multi-time X Games Gold medalist was on his way to Pala Motocross Park to continue his preparations for X Games when the driver of the other vehicle crossed over into his lane striking his vehicle head on, the statement explains.

#100 was transported to a nearby hospital and eventually released. He is home healing from his injuries and under current medical care that has not released him to ride in the competition.


Hansen thanked his sponsors for all their support and offers his apology for being unable to attend the 2016 X Games competition.
