The Rice Eccles stadium played host to round sixteen of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship last night in Salt Lake City, as Christian Craig suffered a main event DNF due to a crash in qualifying.

Taking to Craig’s social media, he explained the extent of his injuries below.

“In the blink of an eye it all changes. Crazy how one minute everything is clicking and the next you’re on the ground. This sport is no joke!” said the Monster Energy Star Yamaha rider.

“I tried everything to race but just couldn’t put any pressure on my leg. As of now, it looks like a fractured fibula and ankle sprain. Going to get checked out at home and get ready for outdoors. Thanks everyone for the support, Going to keep my head held high. Big thanks to everyone at alpinestars mobile medic.”

This rules him out for the end of the Supercross season, and leaves the door open for team mate Colt Nichols to claim the 250SX Championship next weekend in Salt Lake City II.
