“We’re bummed out that he can’t continue for the upcoming rounds, but we are encouraged that he will get the surgery that will allow him to return to 100%. We are supportive of his decision, as the injury has kept Cam from showing his full potential this season. We have not made a decision yet as far as a fill-in rider, and we will have an update to follow at a later date.”

“Unfortunately, this is not the news I wanted to give everyone, but it’s time for me to get this wrist worked on. I tried to fight through the pain and get to the end of the season with some decent results, but it’s at the point now that the pain is affecting my riding, results, and everyday life. I can’t thank the team enough for being so understanding, but I know after this surgery, I will be able to come back stronger and do my job, and that’s to win races! I’ll be back stronger than ever.”
