He could be back for the Indianapolis races

Twisted Tea Suzuki have today confirmed Max Anstie will not take part in this weekend’s Houston Supercross opener after a mid-week crash saw him pick up a back injury.

Dirtbike Rider broke the news yesterday morning after the Winchester man put a picture on Instagram but then deleted it.

“Twisted Tea Suzuki regrets to inform you team racer Max Anstie of Winchester, United Kingdom will miss the opening rounds of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross Series,” said a team statement.

“A crash during his final practice day leading up to the Houston opener resulted in a lower back injury. Please wish Max well in his recovery and potentially see him back competing on the track as soon as Indianapolis.”
