Dean Ferris Injured in Practice Crash

Saturday, March 1, 2014
Red Bull KTM Factory rider Dean Ferris was injured in a practice crash this past week and will miss the remainder of the Monster Energy 250 SX West Supercross Championship Series.

With an 8 week break between rounds 6 and 7 in the West Coast SX series, Ferris had returned to Australia and was at his home riding when the accident happened. Ferris fractured his wrist in the crash and surgery was required to repair the fracture. He is expected to return to US racing early in the Lucas Oil Pro 250 Motocross Championship series.

Why can't riders just practice riding? Why do they have to practice crashing when it so often leads to injury? I think that it's time that the AMA step up for rider safety and ban practice crashes, even if it leads to less polished crashes in the races.
