Tommy Hahn Cleared For Millville

Shan Moore | July 9, 2009

Canidae Motosport Kawasaki’s Tommy Hahn has been cleared to race at the Millville round of the Luca Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championships on July 18, according to team manager Bill Keefe.“Tommy is actually getting back on the bike this afternoon,” said Keefe. “He was released from the hospital [in South Bend, Indiana] Saturday afternoon and all the X-rays and the MRI came back negative. So he took those and sent them to Dr. [Arthur] Ting in San Jose for a second opinion and Dr. Ting let him know yesterday that everything looked good and he could get back on the bike.”Hahn has been the breakout performer of this year’s series and claimed his first-ever 450 podium at two weeks ago at Lakewood. However, at RedBud Hahn was running sixth during the second moto and with two laps to go when he crashed and hit his head.“Tommy hit his head, but he could still remember everything,” said Keefe. “He was actually battling two things; he had a bad case of the flu when he came to the race, and then he crashed. After the crash, he complained of a burning sensation on his neck and we thought it was best to get it checked out. Between the cold and hitting the ground, we thought it was best for him to skip the second moto and go for evaluation.”
