Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Timmy Ferry will sit out the Indianapolis round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM Championship after he was injured while training this week.

"I bruised some ribs and also my pancreas," said Ferry. "I was just riding at my house getting ready for the race and had a pretty bad crash. It's a shame because I have been riding really well this year. I just can't wait to get back to racing."

Ferry is currently is third in the series' standings and has scored podium finishes in four of the eight races this season.

"Like last season, Timmy is doing a great job this year," said Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Manager Mike Fisher. "As an overall package, he is one of the greatest riders in our sport. I think that everyone who knows Timmy will be wishing him a quick and safe return to the racetrack."

Monster Energy Kawasaki will have Travis Preston on the number 11 Kawasaki KX™450F in the final supercross race in the RCA Dome in Indianapolis.
