That sounded like a pretty gnarly crash. Speedy recovery!

1. I could have loaned him the $15 for a new shovel. ( i know, dramatic effect). 2. Were they the nurses that gave him the catheter and bed baths? if so, jealous

Such are the risks that come with the sport!
Great riding until that point - get well soon mate!!!
