I feel the same way- I have broken my right arm 3 times in 2 years. I'm currently on the mend and coming back slowly. I've been fortunate in my racing to stand on the Elite Masters podium a couple times in the NW. Patiently I will return to stand once again on that podium with a huge Xray file under my right arm! Cheers to Fabien and a Speedy Recovery!

Just coming off like 8 weeks from a broken collarbone, I wish I could have seen an article like this a few weeks ago. The line "you must ask this: How many times have we played the game and won?" hits home. Think of how many times you've rode top to bottom on any trail and came out rubber side down. Very inspirational letter, thanks Fabien! Get well soon.

A very french existentialist viewpoint expressed here. Get well soon Fabien and thanks for the words of encouragement!
