    Rider down - Nuke Proof content

    Who could forget the old Nuke Proof ads with James Bethea in them?

    James was involved in an auto accident a little over a week ago and is in need of some help getting back on the bike.

    In case you don't know about him, here is a story the local university newspaper ran about him.

    Here is the link for the GoFundMe for his rehab:

    Thanks G. He is out of the hospital after some surgeries to put stuff back together. He's already missing riding his bike. Wednesday is my turn to take him dinner, so I will have another update after that.

    James is mobile, but moving slowly. Doc gave permission for showers, so he is pretty stoked about that. He is one of the most positive people I know, and his positive outlook is really going to help him on his road to recovery.
