Two of our States true contenders taken out in 10 minutes! Neither will race nationals, Shane out for at least 6 weeks (longer to rebuild) Curtis we are still not sure. I think the family would appreciate the sensitivity and respect shown so far in light of the seriousness of his injury. The BMX Community has been fantastic in it's support, care and concern for both these boys. Many thanks Cathy Rosa
Question: ACT Titles were postponed due to safety concerns. Should Champbikx/Probikx. May have prevented two serious injuries.
While I technically agree with you Hearnie, we must remember that serious injuries happen all the time in BMX. I feel for the poor bugger though as it looked like a horrible crash. Similar to the one from the worlds cruisers in South Africa
Curtis had surgery yesterday and all went well. Theere was less work to his vertebrae either side of T8 and T9 than expected whch can only be a good thing. He is in a lot of pain at the moment. Still a long road for his recovery but he is a great young man and very determined. He is hoping to be home in SA in mid April at this stage. His family thank everyone for their concern, support and best wishes over the past 2 1/2 weeks, Curtis has really appreciated this and it has certainly helped him through.
