    He was hurt on the catwalk just before the Heart Trail intersection. He was put on a back board but that is standard procedure if the mechanism for injury is enough for a possible serious neck or back injury. SARS and the emt's hauled him out using Upper Wasabi. That is all that I have heard.

    It really was Adam? Broken pelvis eh? He better make sure he eats lots of fruits and veggies if taking any pain killers, it sucks to get backed up with a break like that!

    The joke at the swap meet yesterday (BTWW kickoff) was that the trip down U. Wasabi was the first time he had cleaned it.

    I'm not certain of the severity but a broken pelvis is probably the preferred option over donating an organ (aka Organ Donor) like the owner of Late for the Train did many moons ago on Sunset.

    that is really funny, in a black way.

    hope he is better. Don't know the guy well but he helped sell me a bike from Revolution and it was a good experience - he seemed a good guy.
