Reigning 450MX Champion Zach Osborne will miss the remainder of the 2021 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship to fully recover from a back injury.
Osborne sustained the injury mid-way through the Supercross series and worked hard to get himself ready for outdoors season but he unfortunately re-injured himself at the second round in Colorado.
After further review with the team, Osborne has decided to sit out the rest of the season to fully recover for 2022.
“I’m bummed to say the least. This injury has been a big setback with no clear path to 100 per cent but I feel I’m on a good path now and I just need to give my body the time to heal itself,” said Osborne.
“Myself, along with the team, made the decision to pull the plug and be ready for 2022. It was a tough decision in an already-trying year but I believe I can be back to 2020 form with this time away to heal up. Thanks to my team and fans for the support through this.”
