With one week to go before the Cycle Gear Championship of Sonoma, we checked in with Uribe Racing Superbike rider Jayson Uribe and got an update on his status after he suffered an elbow injury in a crash during round four of the AFM Championship series this past weekendat Thunderhill Raceway Park.
“I just finished up an appointment with Dr. Ting, my primary sports doctor (he is the one who chopped off my finger back in 2016),” Uribe said. “It looks like he’s going to be performing surgery on my injured elbow on Monday. He’s going to go back into my elbow and add some synthetic muscle and bone to get me back on the bike sooner. Unfortunately, it looks impossible for me to ride at Sonoma, but instead of having a three-month recovery, I’ll be able to start physical therapy and training after just seven days.”
We’d heard rumors that his crash at Thunderhill “ejected” a couple of bones from his elbow, so we asked Uribe about it. “Yes I’m down a funny bone and another small bone in the elbow,” commented Uribe.
While it seems certain that Uribe will not make Sonoma next weekend, which is his home track, he’s hopeful to be fit to ride at the MotoAmerica Championship of Pittsburgh at Pittsburgh International Race Complex on August 23-25.
