Brandon Hartranft’s Rookie Season is Over
This is a press release from Pro MX…
The CycleTrader/Rock River Yamaha rider recently announced that he will sit out the rest of the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship in order to recover from a shoulder injury.
Hartranft raced the first five rounds of the season before dislocating his shoulder in a practice crash. He had hoped to resume racing this summer, but after missing Southwick and RedBud, Hartranft was advised by his doctors to go a different direction.
“After speaking with doctors and the people in my corner, we’ve decided the best decision is to get surgery while I’m still young so I don’t continue to have problems down the road,” Hartranft said in a social media post. “Really bummed I have to miss the rest of outdoors, but I plan on having many years left in me and the only way to do that is to be healthy.”
Prior to his injury, Hartranft was sitting 16th in 250MX points. His best result of the season came at High Point, where he finished ninth overall with 11-8 moto finishes.
