    thanks to everyone who helped me (and continue to help me :)) deal with my first broken clavicle. two high sides in one day sent me to the hospital and will most likely send me to RMR suspentions for some tuning and a softer rear spring. i spun the wheel out in t3....crash, and later with much greater hight and wicked dismount in t5. too hard on the gas perhaps....too much lean angle...too stiff a rear end maybe. i hit my head pretty hard and knew the shoulder was toast as soon as i popped to my feet. i have not suffered any head injury :bow: so i want to thank kimpex and my new CKX helmet. this one day of action most likely will wrap up the 2010 season for me so i want to appologize to my sponsors for not being able to thank them on the podium this year. i should be around the track and club during the season to help out where i can. have fun out there and play safe. :rolleyes:

    Sorry to hear you had such a rough weekend, Ryan, and I hope that you're back to full fitness soon. Look forward to seeing you at the track in July, if you'll be there.

    Thanks everyone, I know it is kind of bad mojo for injured riders to be walking around in the pits but it is hard to stay away when you spend so much time planning and thinking about the season. I would like to thank my awesome team mates for packing my gear and bike up and delivering it all to my home. You are the best.

    Ryan, I totally agree with Rusty. You're a great guy to have in the pits, and as a friend. I'm very grateful to be able to help you out and that you weren't 'More' hurt. Heal up quick buddy.

    Tough luck buddy, but at least your up and mobile, good to see you on Sunday. Heal up and take your time, my collar bone took 8 weeks but I am old, lol.

    Heal up Ryan - fortunately, you have an abundant supply of alcohol... eerrrr, painkillers.

    You were doing so well too...
