    If you didn't know him you d think he's a newcomer or that he doesn't even race. Hilarious.

    Agreed, although pitting next to McGuiness on the IOM is pretty close to as cool as it gets already

    Practice Day 1 cancelled due to weather. Nonstop rain and endless fog. Bummer.
    Hoping it opens up by Monday.

    Tell 'em you race at Loudon and non-stop rain is a blessing. Does this mean you can drive around the course some more?

    Yeah we did one lap with Gino, Kate and Ethan. Then it was some house cleaning, grocery shopping and dinner.
    More car laps tomorrow.

    Re: How can you race TT Isle of Mann?

    Not the greatest update but at least I am alive and able to type it myself.
    I went down at May Hill at a good rate of speed. My understanding is that I added bar input at the bumps and washed out the front. Hit the ground hard on my ride side and I slid a lot, hit the curb (big curb) with my left should and back and then went under the protective fence.
    As a result: dislocated left shoulder, 5 broken ribs, part of left lung collapsed, broke right shoulder, 8 stitches on the chin from my helmets chin strap, a very bruised left knee (they don't understand why I didn't break it) and an even more bruises heel.
    Nothing too scary and unfortunately nothing I haven't done to myself before (broke those exact ribs 12 years ago, dislocated that shoulder 3 times and have the exact stitches on the same on my chin).
    Unfortunately they will not give me clearance to race. Needless to say I'm devistated. I have no idea what the bike looks like.
    I apologize to all of you for letting you down, this wasn't supposed to go like this. Given the spot where it happened I'm happy to be alive, but I could really do without it.
    I am probably getting released from the hospital later today.

    You didn't let anyone down Sav. Keep your head high man, you chased your dream of getting to race there. You managed to make it way further than the majority of us ever would to the Isle of Mann, and that includes even just to watch. Glad your alive and still in one piece, less some broken bones.

    And for what its worth, your an inspiration to all of us to even know someone that has put in the effort and drive to make dreams become realities. Heal up quick!

    So sorry to hear this news, but glad you're alive to type it yourself, as you said! I've been following along since the first post, and agree with the others - thanks for the inspiration, heal well, upward and onward.
