    Donnie (BMXman) and TJ (Lovebunny) where both injured at today's DH race at Southridge. Donnie crashed and got a compound fracture of his leg, and had to be taken to the hospital in an ambulance. TJ being TJ raced in some costume which consisted of some short jean shorts and some other stuff. He took a spill and hit his head pretty hard and received a concussion. He seemed pretty out of it for a while.
    I hope speedy recoveries to the two of them.

    That was Donnie who broke his leg? Holy crap, one of the guys who went down to help him said is was really bad. I wish him a speedy recovery.

    Sending healing vibes your way. I didn't see Donnie's crash, but I saw him being taken to the hospital; he suffered a compund fracture to his ankle. I also saw TJ sitting under the tent, and he looked like he was in some serious pain. There was actually a few other riders who went down pretty hard today. I wish everyone a speedy recovery...

    im okay now. pretty much i got a decent concussion, destroyed both knees with abrasions, and fractured my toe. aparently i was pretty bad for a while there at the race as far as not knowing people and stuff. i nearly passed out once in urgent care and again in the ER. im ok now im all bandaged up but moving around isnt very apealing to me. also im having some memory loss. the doctor said that would last about a week so be patient with me. thanks for the kind words but donnie needs them much more than i do. also thanks sanjay for running over to subway to grab alfie. also thanks to heather(shyrmp) holding my hand while they cleaned my wounds.

    Damn boys. There must be some bad monkey mojo running around that place.

    Though I'm not sure a concussion for Lovebunny is a bad thing......;)

    Heal up quick both you.

    It was on your lap before you left for SD...


    And I posted this in the DH forum, but if you are like me you very rarely go there so I'll repost this...

    Update: D got out of surgery this morning, they put plates and pins in his ankle, he will be in the hospital until tommorow and will be off the bike for a minimum of 6-8 weeks.
