A preseason practice crash has claimed another rider. Henry Miller, the upstart Minnesota racer that impressed many in 2017 as a privateer in the Monster Energy Supercross Series and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, suffered a long list of injuries while preparing for the 2018 season. Per a post on his Instagram account, Miller suffered broken L1, L2, and L3 vertebra (lumbar vertebra in the lower back), a dislocated hip and a fractured hip socket. The crash required admission to a hospital for further evaluation, but luckily is no spinal damage due to the damaged vertebra.

An injury is never good for a rider but this is incredibly unfortunate for Miller, who had just announced a deal with the Suzuki RMArmy supported H.E.P. Motorsports team for 2018. Because the injury recently happened, the full timeline for recovery is not clear and it puts Miller’s chance at lining up for 2018 in question.
