I was really relieved to see Wendy walking around under the big top on Saturday night. Seeing the chopper leave DW with her on board was not a good feeling. Dale looked in pretty good shape when he picked up the Truespode Award, too.

I haven't heard any new reports from Whyzee, Taraker, Mick, or Flying Scot. How are you guys doing?

Lola and Aryn apparently got the worst of it. I hope they aren't injured too badly.

Dale was doing great by the time we got home until he realized his racing is over for this year (last 2 races)
Taracker was back at the awards and said he was doing fine- broke the bone just up on the wrist.
The other kid (sorry don't have your name) involved in that crash was in the big top for the awards and said he didn't think anything was broken.
Is Mick smart enough to know he's hurt (just kidding)- His attitude was no different then when he was riding the nighttime poker run in his pink panties- still smiling
Whyzees family was sounding as good as could be given the circumstances

I still have a bit of a headache and my stomach hurts somewhat. But things are getting better. I ran into an awful lot of beer cans while a was there.

I talked to Whyzee yesterday and he seemed in good spirits and was talking about heading back home sometime this week.

I hope they can make it and everyone heals well and quick.

I helped Whyzee load up and he said they should be leaving about the middle of the week for home. His son had just gotten out of surgery and had 2 rods put in his leg and his arm had been set. His wife had 4 for sure and most likly 6 broken ribs and a punctured lung that they were going to put a tube in on a temporary basis. He REALLY wanted to let the rider that accidentally hit her know that it was not the riders fault and that he hoped he was OK and not too shook up by it.

Taraker is going to have to get his jigsaw puzzle piced back together by a good sawbones but I'm sure he'll be fine. I noticed the pain killers didn't slow down his mouth at all so you know he'll be just fine ;)

I let Gary know that Whyzee did not in any way blame him and felt bad that people may be saying it was his fault. Gary was NOT waived off and only saw the folks on the ground once he was airborn and coming down on them, with no other place to go. Gary felt really, really bad it happened and wished Whyzee's family the best.

Put it this way JP. I made it to work today. That's a good sign but I will get checked up by the middle of next week just to make sure there was no real injury other than my courage and my loss of riding for the last few days of Dirt Week. :whiner:

I hope that everyone else recovers completely and quickly too.

i'm glad everyone will recover physically, i hope gary recovers mentally as well.it was not his intention to injure anyone. we are all participating in a dangerous sport. glad every one is not permanetly injured, apparently Mr. Dr. Dubauch is more human than human because i've seen jumpers get hauled off the DZ with less impact!

I talked with Whyzee yesterday afternoon and he said Lola was already able to walk a little. Apparently the punctured lung has closed and she is on the upwing! Aryn is close to being able to leave, but obviously they'll all leave together.

I'm not too clear on it, but I think she broke ribs 3, 4, 5, and 6 on the right side in the front, back, and side...ouch!

She did tell Dave he better not sell her bike while she's in the hospital...my kind of girl! :thumb:

One of the young riders (Zach) with my group broke his arm Friday on the mini-track. He saw an Orthopedist (sp?) Monday morning. Doc said all looks good. No need for a cast but he'll have to wear a sling for 4 to 6 weeks. Zach had a great time at DW and I don't think that the broken wing lessened his experience.
