Colton Facciotti Injury Update
Monday, March 23, 2015
2014 Canadian MX1 champion, Honda Canada TLD GDR rider Colton Facciotti, has reported on his Instagram account (@coltonfacciotti) that he crashed and broke his pelvis while training down south for the upcoming Rockstar Energy MX Nationals.
I contacted team owner Derek Schuster this morning and he confirmed the injury but added he should only “be off the bike a few weeks.”
Apparently, he crashed a few days ago and the initial x-ray didn’t show any cracks. A further CT scan did, however, find “a little crack,” said Schuster.
Derek ended our conversation by saying, “…he will be back on the bike training at GPF still in April.”
Colton is reportedly already back on the spin bike in the gym today.
Well, that’s good news considering the possible outcome of an injury to a hip. Get well soon, Colton.
