Get Well Soon Jim!! aka STKR

Unfortunately, He got a ambulance ride on sunday at BHF.

I just talked to him on the phone, he said i could post.

I wasnt at BHF until monday, thats when i heard what happened.

He was coaching, working with a rider behind him.
He looked back to see how the rider did thru 1,
when he turned around the rider in front had checked up for
no good reason. it was either asspack em or run off.
Im not sure of the rest, but he crashed hard at T2.

[Disclaimer] this is what i heard from the people there, not from Jim himself.
so the description may not be accurate.

he is at rockford memorial with:

4 broken ribs.
A punctured spleen which has been removed.
assorted other injuries that go with a crash like that.

He sounded to be in a lot of pain when we spoke,
sounds like they are pretty conservative with the morphine at Rockford M.
He cant type too well right now, so i wouldnt expect much from him yet.

Get well soon Jim, let us know if we can help with anything.

Saw him last night..... He is in good spirits. But he didn't look good. He didn't look great before he crashed, so I guess he'll be just fine
