Josh Grant Gets Surgery: The Monster Energy Kawasaki team issued a press release today stating that team racer Josh Grant had a successful knee surgery after injuring his knee during the first moto at this past weekend’s Southwick MX National, round seven of the 2017 Lucas Oil/AMA Pro Motocross Championships.

Grant, who just turned 31 years old, was having a really solid year in 2017, and although his results look good on paper, he had a fair bit of bad luck as well, with flat tires and other gremlins hampering his efforts on occasion. He missed the Tennessee National after going down really hard in practice, then defied a team press release that said he wasn’t going to ride the following week at RedBud by showing up and putting in a 10-5 score. He started the 2017 outdoor series with three consecutive moto podium finishes before the aforementioned gremlins gave him two DNFs in the next two motos.

But the surgery seems to be the end of the 2017 outdoor series for Grant. Whether he re-signs for 2018 with the Monster Energy Kawasaki team, or signs with another suitor, we can expect to see him at the Monster Energy Cup this coming October, if not sooner.
