Well looks like I'm out, due to fracture of my ankle today at MSRH. Took the new bike out after suspension and tires being changes ( john didn't have any good fronts in my size, I gave him a old one that seemed pretty good, but it was old and 1st lap of the session came over the launch well, then went to dive into key hole and no traction, thought it was oil how it felt like I was on ice. Well long story short just washed out low side pretty hard. Thought I was ok, went back to trailer cooled off, grabbed my go to R1 rode next session just to make a point to myself, pressed harder than all day, but every time I would go to turn in to the right, I wanted to jump off the pain was so bad when twisting my heel on the foot peg. After 4 laps I pitted out took a break, that's when swelling and pain started setting in. Stopped by ER and I have 2 minor fractures and one that is significant but no casting. I have to ware a boot for 6-9 weeks apparently. !!!

that sucks man. looks like August 3rd is just bad luck for ankles... i fractured mine this day, exactly one year ago from crashing at the carousel. (one-year anniversary of ankle recovery today!!)

i had surgery on it two days later. what bones were fractured? mine was the Medial Malleolus



i will be there at MSRH on Saturday, given the forecast is looking okay Today's weather was awesome.

I'm thinking about going.
Need to do an oil and brake fluid change before hitting the track again.
Don't have a lot of free time between now and then to get it done though.
