The track side medical people are great but a little hard on gear. I suppose if I hadn't crashed my YZ450 they wouldn't have cut me out of my suit. I did get my first ambulance ride, 2 actually for the day. Ended up with 4 broken ribs and a collar bone in 4 pieces, but other than that no worse for wear. I get to have a plate and screws installed Monday to put it together. I am getting way to old for this crap.

Glad your ok, and it does suck getting older, we no longer bounce when we fall...
We bounce it's just that we are brittle inside :banghead


What a raw deal man,was that your black perforated suit that fit perfectly ?

At least you have a back-up rider for the June races ;)

Heal-up quick Dave and let's go to Brainerd and spectate :clapper

OMFG dave call me, I had not heard about this crash until I read this post. I need more details my man!
Dave went out to Stokholm (cokato) with the likes of Cristian Schmidt and that other superfast U.L. tard dude.

Here's a last years video of the table top jump where his bike landed short on the rear fender and spit him over the bars and to the base of the down ramp:eek:

Correct me if I'm wrong JET.

Get well soon man. That tabletop at cokato can be sketchy with street tires I almost wrecked a few times in that dirt section.

Glad you're ok. You'll have more Ti than your bike, keep us posted. Any pics of the bike?
Not much visible damage to the bike. I need to loosen up everything on the front end and straighten it all out, it's kind of tweaked. I think it will probably be stainless instead of Ti.

Thanks for all the well-wishes guys.

Good luck with the surgery, keep us posted asap on your recovery. Also post up a list of what you may need and so we can start digging around for some spares if you need them sir.

Thought I would throw out an update. Made it home this afternoon after the surgery. They ended up putting 8 screw and a plate on my left clavicle to tie it back together. Doctor said it was a pretty impressive break. I can already feel a difference with it back in one piece. I hope to be back at it fairly quickly.
