He was Forkners and Sextons competition in amateurs but just a tick slower.  He is real fast but has had injuries.

Isn't Sexton injured now?

He has been Honda'd just like everyone else and currently is Canard's understudy.

He is Fly Racings new hope!  He started SX good, but suffered a severe concussion while practicing.  If he can stay healthy, expect big things.

Has Forkner or Sexton had many injuries?

Sexton yes, hurt three times trying to go pro. Forkner has never really been hurt to bad.

He's talking about Taft, not Sexton.  Sexton sat out, Taft got 13th in the main.

I thought he broke his femur first race back.. :thinking:

Can't Like that statement, though I think it is correct.

He has a lot of fans back in his home area.  Friends have been following him for years.

My understanding is he was injury free as an amateur and had two major injuries when he turned pro.  Supercross  is not his friend.  Seems like bad luck, not lack of skill that sidelined him.  I'm hoping he gets told to work his way back, not earn your contract.  He could be one f the next good 250 riders.

He's another rider not starting off well and has great potential, seems to compound itself with some riders.

I hate to say, I believe he returned one sx race and broke or cracked his femur in practices or qualifying?
