    3 Fractures, 3 splintered Breaks... Done For Rest of Year

    Ah can't ride for a while now! Just crashed super hard on my Meta flying down a rocky DH. Was sessioning a section for the 7th run that morning, getting tired and over confident being that I've done it many times before.

    Forearm and wrist is busted up. Got 3 fractures in the Radius, plus Ulna is snapped in 3 places and pushed out of alignment. Torn up knee with deep gashes, busted up right shoulder and a seriously bruised ego!

    Going in for surgery in next couple days and coming out with a terminator arm.

    Wow...not good. At 59, if I had those injuries my riding future could be seriously impacted.

    Healing mojo sent...Hope you 'bounce back' soon!
