Speculation was rife online as Jett was pictured riding back to the pits after the crash, seemingly holding his left wrist down in his lap.  He did instantly hold his wrist as he got up from the crash, which happened as he attempted to triple over the next jump after a tabletop in a rhythm section, and landed way short.


In an effort to squash the rumours, Jett’s social media accounts showed the above image and stated that, “Jett is fine and ready to race tomorrow in San Diego.”

As he and his brother Hunter sport the fantastic silver-look graphics in homage to Honda’s 1970s AMA racing machinery, as part of the 50th Anniversary of Supercross celebrations that all teams are getting involved with, all eyes will be on the #18 when practice resumes in California.

The retro look on the Honda is paired with the SMX Champ’s plate, creating a unique look for the Anaheim 1 Winner.

After losing the points lead in the mud of San Francisco, Jett will go back to sporting the yellow & blue SMX World Champion’s number plate.  The big question is, will we see it in the Main Event?
