SUPERCROSS ROUND 2 – JACKSON RICHARDSON SMASHES FORTH

By | #FISTARMY, SUPERCROSS

Another round of the Australian Supercross Championship has wrapped up over the weekend with Jackson overcoming adversity to finish 9th in the 20 lap main event. #smashforth

“We had to battle through some adversity this weekend with my foot injury. We were able to qualify 7th which was a great start, but unfortunately in the heat race I had a small crash and aggravated my injured foot. We regrouped and came back out for the main event, I got an average start but fought all the way to the 6th position but with a handful of laps to go my foot started to give out and I was barely able to hang on, this resolved in my losing a number of positions and finishing the main event in 9th.  I’m glad out make it out of Adelaide safely and now have the ability to get healthy over the 3-week break before heading to Round 3 in Sydney where I expect to be fighting up in the Top 5 where I know I can be.”
– Jackson.

 

SUPERCROSS ROUND 1 – JACKSON RICHARDSON INJURED

By | #FISTARMY, SUPERCROSS

Richo had a pretty nasty crash at the opening round of the Australian Supercross Championship in Brisbane on the weekend which you might have seen?

Unfortunately Jackson didn’t make the main event due to him stalling the motorcycle on his last chance to qualify but as always was able to maintain his sense of humour  🤘#smashforth 😂😂😂

Obviously Jackson was extremely bummed with the result but overall was really happy with his riding, especially after qualifying 4th earlier in the day.

Following the opening round Jackson has since had X-Rays on his right foot which was hurt during his crash. Jackson end up breaking all 5 toes on his right foot, the pinky toe being the most significant.

Despite the injury, Jackson will compete at Round 2 this weekend in Adelaide as his pain level is quite low when he is actually on the motorcycles which is a positive.
