Red Bull KTM’s Max Vohland suffered a dislocated hip during his qualifying crash during the Indianapolis 1 supercross, the team have announced.
After going down heavily in the whoops section of the track, which resulted in a red flag and Vohland getting attended to by the alpinestars medical team before getting lifted off track, KTM Factory Racing announced Vohland’s injuries later on in the evening, but the status of whether Max will be competing soon is still unsure.
Here is the official word from the team:
“Team rider Maximus Vohland was unable to line up for Saturday’s night program after suffering a practice crash earlier in the day. The rookie secured a strong seventh-place qualifying position in the 250SX East division before getting transported to the local hospital where doctors confirmed that he has sustained a dislocated hip. Fortunately for Vohland, the X-Ray showed no bone damage and doctors were able to perform a “closed reduction” to put his hip back in place, allowing him to be released from hospital on Saturday evening.”
Vohland also took to social media to give everyone an update on how he is recovering:
