Christian Craig injury update.

Christian Craig, of the Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil Honda team, has suffered yet another setback in return to racing after finding out that the wrist he broke last summer at the Southwick National MX hasn’t healed properly and will have to undergo surgery to get it repaired.

Christian Craig to miss most of the Supercross series.

Craig broke the scaphoid bone (a.k.a. navicular) at Southwick and made his return at the Anaheim I Supercross, but had to withdraw due to pain in the wrist.

If all goes well, Craig hopes to return for the last three rounds of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series to prepare for a full on assault on the outdoor National Motocross Championship.
