After doing loads of fysio, the day had come to test the shoulder. Will it pop out again? We'll see. I took the KTM instead of the BMX as I felt the bike had more suspension to save the cases. After a few sessions I felt okay. Next session I was getting so tired that I got "whiskey throttle" on the last straight before getting off the track. This had me fly off the track in full speed and before I knew it, I was back at the hospital for a few days. Broken rib, slight concussion (couldn't remember much of what happened) and a broken shoulder. The only good news is that the shoulder did not pop out so the surgery earlier in the year turned out fine. There's never really a good time to get injured. With the Freestyle.ch (Switzerland) and Interbike (Las Vegas) coming up, I got an order from the doctor to keep it easy for 6-8 weeks. Will you see me there? Maybe yes, maybe no, but please don't slap me on the shoulder or kick me in the back when you see me.
Thanks to everyone for their support and understanding. Well appreciated. Always.
