Hahaha...Good One!

Good on Candie for driving you up there and sticking with you.

Ariel & Tim - i hope you both recover quickly and get back on the track ASAP.

Ariel, i honestly would like to know how it happened, why was someone so close to you? I mean it was a LMS track day, Buck usually runs a small number of people at a time.

Who was the other rider involved? Why were there soo many accidents? Weather? Riders fooling? Morning sessions? Track change? What happened? I'm sure others would like to know aswell.

I don't want some story going on - so how about you give us your version of the story of how it happened? I understand brake fade, but getting hit from behind? Where on the track were you guys?

Too many questions? eh. I'd just like to know. I understand if you don't want to asnwer.

To all: as far as posting versions of what happened and finger pointing at " who is at fault," is irrelavent IMO... We as riders know the risk when we get on the bike and hit the track... We can sit and arm chair QB ANY accident in the world but As I stated earlier, If Pros go down than we as mosty amature riders are subject to the same fate as they are... I for one will not finger point at anyone and I hope that the same would not be done towards me... An accident is just that, an ACCIDENT... we just have to learn from the mistakes and get back out there and do what we love to do, RIDE!!!
I like your attitude,
may I wish you a swift and complete recovery from your injuries.
