Briton Max Anstie will sit out the opening Supercross round in Houston on Saturday following a crash this week, his team has now confirmed.
Anstie put up a photo on social media of himself yesterday but it was quickly taken down and there was no news from the team – until now.
“Twisted Tea Suzuki regrets to inform you team racer Max Anstie of Winchester, United Kingdom will miss the opening rounds of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross Series. A crash during his final practice day leading up to the Houston opener resulted in a lower back injury. Please wish Max well in his recovery and potentially see him back competing on the track as soon as Indianapolis.”
