“With Arnaud’s injury it looks like he will be out for the rest of the supercross season, Kawasaki, Monster Energy and our team decided that the right thing to do would be to make the bike available for another top tier rider. Gannon has been riding a Kawasaki and he’s been doing very well. It’s an opportunity for him to showcase his talent and we are excited to have him.” -Mitch Payton
