Hey man crashing happens when you ride at the limits, and it sounds like this might have been a mechanical malfunction anyway.

Just bad luck that two were so close together, but it happens all the time.

It seems to happen to Pridmore more. eh eh. That rhymed.

Seriously, when was the last time he rode an entire season?

When he won the FX championship. As I recall.

Re: (stk0308)

That makes sense. I didn't realize how old he was. He turned pro in '90?!

Seems like Gerry McCoy, in his GP days at RedBull Yamaha, had equal luck; that guy just kept taking the beating.

Jeez! He's a great guy, but how many more crashes can the guy take? I hate to say it, but maybe it's time to throw in the towel...</TD></TR></TABLE>

Maybe I am confused, but I thought that he ran a track school as well. A lowslide instructor? Not picking on the guy who has enough on his plate already as well as being MJ's good golf buddy. As far as his age goes, hell, Franki Chili is older and still riding competitively in WSB.

Yah, I was kinda thinking the same thing... He's a great guy and seems to really be putting out 100% this year for his buddy MJ, but he's also wadding it pretty routinely. He's got STAR school, and he'd make a great announcer too, but one of these days he's really gonna get hurt, which would be a shame.

I did a two up Lap with him in 02 and it was one of the biggest rushes I have ever had on a bike. We were Haulin ass on a Katana. He is one of the nicest people I have ever met and is a genuinely good person. He also has a twisted sense of humor.

Re: Jason Pridmore: Maybe he should retire? (AZ Scott)

Jason and I have talked about this once or twice. The man is still a competitor.

I'd rather see him competing on a golf course (he's THAT good - or at least before this last spate of injuries).

There are others I've thought the same of - on a club racing level (hint hint) - but he's making some money off of it.

Elbow abrasions......must be that high quality Joe Rubbish suit.
He never had this happen while wearing a Helimot suit.

I thought losing the spleen was "really hurt"

Re: Jason Pridmore: Maybe he should retire? (Buckelew)

Bah, it's just an internal organ... no big deal. I did his 2-day STAR school last week and noticed that his lower legs are a roadmap of scars. Doesn't keep him from going fast, though!

Jason

STAR just got finished doing a school at Louden and Jason was looking forward to getting back up to speed. One of his instructors and I are close friends and I asked him ealier this week how he was doing. He takes his fitness quite seriously and trains like a madman.
His last season on the YOSH Superbike team he wadded himself up on a regular basis and lost his ride, confidence, and his reputation as a good rider.
He bounced back, won the Formula Extreme title and regained his "name" in racing.
Jason is a class act and an incredible emmissary to our sport. I doubt you could find a nicer man in the paddock.
He has a successful school and golf/announcing career if he chooses.
It sucks to see him down again apparently at no fault of his own.
Crashing sucks as we all know and it does take some time to regroup. I bet he'll be back in action soon.
Jason will always be one of my favorite guys. I took my first track school with him in 1999 and it will be a day I'll never forget!!!!!!
