A gruelling US season and Motocross of Nations has been blamed for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson ruling himself out of another supercross event.
Here’s what Elhombre had to say about Straight Rhythm and this weekend’s Monster Energy Cup.
“Just updating everyone about the Red Bull Straight Rhythm and the upcoming Monster Cup. Everyone knows that after the last Outdoor National Zach and I went to Europe for a month to train for the MXoN and our Country.
“My plan was to come back and do the two-stroke Red Bull Straight Rhythm first. Truth is after only two days on the bike after riding in deep sand for a month I just didn’t feel comfortable and chose to not race.
“I apologise to all my fans who showed up to see me ride but switching to a two-stroke after riding a four-stroke is harder than what you think it might be. Because I’ve been going wide open and not having much time to prepare, not to mention I haven’t had any off-season preparing for all these events the team and I feel it is in my best interest that I not race the Monster Cup.
“I wish I could have been able to race and apologise to all my fans who were hoping to see me race at these events. Right now I need to let my body rest and get ready for the long season we have coming up for SX and MX [in 2020]. Want to thank my team and my mechanic C-Low for all the support and hard work they put in all the time -Jason.”
The Monster Energy Cup will be held next Saturday, October 19 in Las Vegas, NV at Sam Boyd Stadium.
