Hayden Mellross Sidelined For Phoenix


Livingston, CA. (January 26, 2017)- 51FIFTY Energy Drink Yamaha's Hayden Mellross suffered a hand injury early in the Main last weekend in Anaheim.

After a strong heat where teammates Tyler Bowers and Hayden Mellross finished 4th and 5th, Hayden was looking for another solid 250 Main. Unfortunately, coming into the first turn, Hayden was involved in pile up and went down. Mellross realized his bike and his body were too battered to continue the race.

The week prior in San Diego, the young Australian turned in his career best ride in 9th (coming from 18th) and was looking forward to carrying that momentum as the season progressed.

Due to the sustained injuries in Anaheim, Mellross will not compete this weekend in Phoenix. The entire 51FIFTY Energy Drink Yamaha Team looks forward to having him back at the races as soon as possible.
