Martin Davalos will miss the remainder of Monster Energy Supercross to try and recover from Epstein-Barr. Nearly two weeks ago in a team press release it was revealed that Davalos had been dealing with the illness. He raced the next weekend in Detroit, but collided with RJ Hampshire in the main and was unable to finish.

He released the following on Instagram today.

Bummed I won’t be able to race St. Louis this weekend but doctors suggested I stay home and get better so I can be healthy for outdoors. It’s hard enough to go out there and be competitive while ur healthy it’s another story to deal with an illness and race. It’s been a tough year I’ve never experience what I’m going thru but hope to get back to feeling good soon

Davalos, currently ninth in 250SX points, has just one top five this season a year after winning twice in the East Region. He won in St. Louis a season ago.
