UNITED STATES. Supercross with its intensity, injuries result no matter how much preparation a rider puts in, it is the ‘luck’ of racing. In a move to have the Yamaha on the start gate (RacerX reports) “Josh Hill will race the final two rounds of Monster Energy Supercross in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas with Monster Energy Factory Yamaha, the team announced today.” Hill has been in the paddock, or should KAJX say behind the desk working for Monster Energy, however recently he made the move out of the office and KAJX is not sure whether Monster Energy links where severed or just stretched. Obviously, it is a hard transition from a full-time athlete to a full-time desk jockey.
“Hill, who began his career with factory Yamaha, returned to racing at the Seattle Supercross as a fill-in for Justin Barcia. In his first race since retiring in 2015, the 2008 Minneapolis Supercross winner finished 21st after an early crash while running inside the top five.
With Cooper Webb out for the foreseeable future due to a fractured tibia and fibula sustained in Minneapolis, Yamaha has decided to bring back Hill.”
