it happened on flat rock road on tug hill. i'm out of the game for the rest of the year. broken arm and the sled is totaled. the guy in front of me lost control of his sled and rooled it on a blind hill. when i came over the hill he was laying down in the right hand side and i swearved left to miss him and there was his sled upside down and cross ways in the middle of the trail. I t-boned his sled. i didn't even get a thank for not running him over or a sorry.

i'll be going in for surgery at the end of this week to get some plates and screws.

Sorry to hear about the sled! Happy to hear that your injuries were not life threatening. After seeing that man die earlier in the season, my heart goes out to anyone who has a mishap, but I'm very happy to hear that you're okay. Heal quick...and take a nice vacation!

Hope everything turns out all right for you-I'm headed to Tug Hill next weekend-I know it can be a zoo up there-a lot of throttle jockeys and racer wanna be's.

Look on the bright side-you can get a brand new FCat with the insurance $$$ next year. B)

Wow it's good your here to talk about good luck with your surgery. Just a note riders stay tight to the right and watch out for the lunatic coming the other way and EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED!
