Twisted Tea Suzuki rider Max Anstie will sit out this weekend’s Orlando Monster Energy Supercross as his back is still not in good enough shape to take to the track.

“I won’t be going to Orlando this Saturday,” Anstie told DBR. “I have only ridden a little bit of Supercross in the last couple of days and will need a few solid days under my belt before I get into racing.

“If I have a good few days coming up then the plan is to be out there and get my feet wet next weekend at Orlando II, then use the two weeks before Daytona to get up to speed and close to 100 per cent.”
