    I think rg500 from here witnessed it. I was talkign with him yesterday. He was at that track day.

    Hit him up.

    I guess he went over the fence into one of the other turns or something like that.

    Heal up man.

    I am glad to hear Bryce is OK, and on the mend.

    I was there. I didn't see the crash but I rolled through right after it. I have spent a lot of time at the track and this was the worst wreck I have ever seen. Way worse than that Ducati last week.

    Apparently he got a little sideways exiting the bowl, and then was the victim of a vicious tankslapper. There were visible big black zig zags exiting the bowl. The bike was in many pieces in front of the treehouse and the rider was pitched over the tire wall into turn 4.

    Only one rider saw the crash. I hate to say it but from what I heard from other riders he was pushing way to hard all day. I only saw him on the track once.

    The Crash happened at 4:00. We never heard anything about his condition other than that he was conscious in the ambulance.

    Team Pro Motion did a good job of getting the track cleaned up and people back on the track. Although it was the end of the day for me.

    I can't help but think that a steering damper might have prevented this.

    I don't know Bryce but I wish him a speedy recovery, and I hope to see him out there again.

    People focus on the more obvious walls at NHIS, but the turn 8 hill is an even nastier place to crash, because of the combination of a cresting hill and the speed (fast riders are well over 100 mph). This is why Tony's TD don't allow passing there.

    Feel better, Bryce.

    Hope he comes through it OK.

    Sounds like he was improving from some of the posts


    This is the kind of stuff I try to get through everyone's head during the morning meeting... and throughout the day.

    This is SERIOUS SHIT we do!

    If you are an aggressive rider on the track, now's the time to get that steering damper!

    And never forget when you're out there that things can turn ugly real fast.

    This goes for the track and the street!

    I spoke to Bryce tonight, he called me from home.....


    he sends his sincerest thanks to those who helped him. he was truly impressed with the track officials and cornerworkers etc etc..

    His injuries ( as best I can recall him telling me)

    10 ribs broken total (between the front and back)
    Punctured lung
    lacerated spleen/liver
    concussion from hell
    no rash
    and whole lots of bruising

    he was MES'd to Concord, which he said he was very happy with the way they treated his injuries...

    the GEAR did its JOB !

    Barnacle Bill custom race suit- cut off by docs...

    Back protector- did its job, he is not paralyzed

    KBC VR-4 helmet-
    severely rashed combined with wearing a mouth guard which he was told saved him from breaking his jaw and disintegrating his teeth....

    boots and gloves saved his joints from breaking

    he says he has a clear CT/head scan from his doc back home, but they have him on some serious meds...

    I've been meaning to get a mouthguard. It likely saved him from an even worse concusion as your teeth slamming tother is one common contributor to concussion.

    I tried racing with a mouthguard when I started--made heavy breathing difficult.

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    A basic guard will do it. Just cut it to fit and put it in boiling water to soften it good, then, as soon as you can stand it, put it in you mouth and bite down hard. Press the edges inaround your gums and you're all set.

    My dad was a dentist and used to custom make my guards for hockey. Wish I had that option now!

    Did you put it in with your helmet on and run around the neighborhood to see if you could still breathe?
