Added a comment about video Gee Atherton Documents the Huge Crash in Which He Smashed 11 Bones 7/28/2021 10:33 PM

Your a true champ Gee! I once wrecked a moped taking a blind corner pinned and nailed the back of a double parked suv with it's hazards flashing doing a good 45-50mph. I also hit 11 bones, 6 ribs, 3 vertibrae in my and another 2 in my neck. I also punctured a lung, thankfully they shanked me between the ribs with a scalpel and inserted a chest tube attached to a pump before it collapsed. Finally I sustained a stage 4 spleen laceration and the doc had to soughter off 1/3 of it loosing all functional abilities in that third in the process. Had to get two bags of blood in me quick cause I was fainting from the internal slow leak . . . No femur or orbital socket so I can't touch your record, but dude practice bone image healing techniques . . . I know it sounds like new age hippie quackism but I swear it's a big part of how I could do butterfly strokes in the pool again so fast and why I was back on my crf250 (sold the stupid moped, my uncle's ripped me a new one for wrecking so hard on a two stroke with only 88ccs haha) 3 months sooner than my physical therapist projected. They are going to give you this little lung exercise device where you have to control the rate at which you inhale by balancing this little ball inside of a tube between two lines as you inhale as full as possible and then keep the ball between the two lines as you exhale as well. Doing that more than the doctor recommended is also key to why I held up so quick. You will permanently lose stamina and worse lung capacity unless you practice that stupid game double or triple the amount in the doctors tell you to and for long after they tell you to stop. That's what I did and dare I say I can still hold my breath as long as I could 12 years ago when I was in the Junior lifeguards program in Ventura county. What you said about recognizing the risk and accepting the fact that that's always a possibility proves the caliber of professional rider and champion you really are. Besides the Welsh are a tenacious and spry lot, the world just don't make them like y'all anymore. Your a limited edition mate. Heal up, don't push yourself, you have nothing to prove that you haven't already time and again. Cheers to the mighty Gee Atherton!

What the hell is Ruiz pointing at? The pic is too small, when I zoom in I don't notice anything out of the ordinary about his rear wheel or mech, so what's he telling us to look at?
