    Information of the rider today in T7


    I was at pergrid talking with everyone there when the red flag came out. The look on their faces when the radio call hit their headset and me not knowing what was going on told me more then I ever want to hear. I still don't know exactly what happened or who it was. If anyone knows FACTS and only facts could you share with us please. I'm not a religious man but my thoughts and prayers go out to the rider and his family.

    I've heard that he is alive, so that is a good thing. Possibly lost a foot? That's what Pkates was able to say

    OMG how sad. He seems to be dealing with it bravely, at least on the surface. Wishing a speedy recovery of body and spirit.

    That is the best news I've heard. I was thinking the worst. Looking on the bright side now,it's only a foot. I raced at Pocono with a guy that was a paraplegic. He Velcroed his feet to customize flat rearsets so his legs would stay put. If I didn't see it with my own eyes I wouldn't believe it. Only having one foot is a big advantage now. Tremendous savage move to save weight and a story like that will never get old. If that happened to me I would be stoping people walking down the street to tell them how I severed my foot!
    Seriously I was sickened at what I was hearing. I can sleep much better now.

    The whole paddock turned somber quick...really eerie feeling. Glad to see hes well enough to be able to post!! Lost foot sucks, but much better than what felt like might have happened.

    Brett is actually an active member on nesr as well, so I'm sure he'll post something here eventually.

    Yep. CBR929RE, I believe. Also the subject of one of the most interesting race photos I've ever seen where a fellow rider ends up riding his bike, with him, through the turn 1 corner.

    I'm happy to hear this as well. The paddock did turn somber, every single person there looked to be upset and worried. I was no different even though I'm brand new to LRRS and don't know him. It was palpable, and frankly moving. When you read this Brett, know that so many people care about you. Everyone who knows you loves ya, you aren't alone.

    Stopped by on Sunday to see him, along with about 8 other riders who showed up around the same time. He got up long enough to BS a little, I got a fist bump, and he is staying positive. Unreal the spirit the kid has.

    And if anybody is looking for gift ideas for Brett, this t shirt should fit the bill.
