After suffering a shoulder injury at the season-opening Loretta Lynn's National the Washington native returned to action, only to further aggravate the issue. As a result, Sanayei will undergo surgery to repair his shoulder, forcing him to miss the remainder of the season.

So bummed to be writing this, but my shoulder hasn’t gotten any better and is just in too rough of shape to continue racing without getting it fixed. I tried my best to race with it last weekend at RedBud and did all I could, but the issues im having are not ones that heal on their own. So we have decided I will be getting surgery on it so I can get back in time for next year. Tough decision to make when i have this amazing ride, but if I can not ride at 100% it doesn’t do myself or the team any good. I want to thank the whole @pcraceteam @racekawasaki for the opportunity and all of the sponsors and people that helped out! Bummed and down, but not out ????????
