Default Blair Morgan interview

any of you guys read the interview Arctic insider did with him the other day?? Best one I have seen on him since he got hurt. He really goes into detail about everything that has gone on in the last few years. It looks like he will never race again even in an adaptive race. He explains why. I found it interesting his favorite all around sled was his 98 black magic 678 mod and the best handling sled was his original rev stocker. He said his mods were over 180HP at the time and were not fun to ride.

Thats an awesome interview. Probably the coolest part is the story with Roger Skime

Great article, sorry to hear about his divorce and financial situation etc, can't help but think though that he still sounds a little disgruntled, anyone else? I mean I understand that he had a terrible accident but there's guys out there that still rip in the same or similar situations, ie Doug Henry, Paul Thacker etc......I mean there's others out there making the best of it not sitting around feeling sorry for themselves.....

He said he did not need to work because racing was good to him.He also stated that he does not ride because of fear of screwing up his already injured shoulder more.
