Chandler Burns’ MX Nationals Setback

Chandler Burns’ MX Nationals Setback


It was a hard-fought battle at rounds 7 and 8 of the MX Nationals this past weekend for Chandler!

When we last saw Chandler Burns at the VIC state championships he was tearing up the track; unfortunately, the MX Nationals track has turned the tables on the 17-year-old moto wonder and Chandler ended up with a few major battle wounds from the weekend.

Handing out samples to all the true carnivores!

Right out of the gate in race 1 of the weekend, Chandler took a hard fall. His fighting spirit and will to persevere got him back up on the bike. However, as his discomfort increased he was advised to seek out medical attention.

After consulting the on-sight medics Chandler decided to sit out the remainder of the day. Definitely a hard decision to make, but in the end it was the best choice as his X-ray revealed a break in the scaphoid bone on his right wrist- a common injury for motocross racers – I guess you are not a true motocross racer until you have broken a bone :p

Feeding the hungry fans, big and small

He loved having free time to chat with all the fans and hand out heaps of jerky samples! We know that with a support system like his loyal fan-base he will be back in no time!

A fall is never easy, but Chandler’s positivity and drive to get better will serve him well as he begins the road to recovery.

The new bike!

And we know he’s itching to get back in the races with his new bike from AJ’s Motorcycles Superstore! We can’t help but love the Jack Link’s sticker on the front… #ShamelessAdvertising
