Hey guys, sorry I haven’t been able to put anything out until now but I’ve been a bit second hand. I’ve got two bruised lungs, all of my ribs are fractured, four broken vertebrae, my neck is broken in two places, broken sternum, collarbone and multiple other back fractures. Fortunately, there was no paralysis, which was a big, big bonus as that was a major issue and concern. The first thing my surgeon said after seeing my x-rays was ‘How on earth are you not paralysed?’
The operation to fix the back and neck ran obvious risks of paralysis, but fortunately it went very well. I’m now pretty sore and beaten up but a rehab and recovery program always starts as soon as a crash ends. It’s a long road ahead but for once I got a great start and can’t thank you all for your support throughout these difficult times. There’s so many people to thank, marshals, medics, team members, friends, fans, and family that I don’t really know where to start. A massive shout-out to my amazing wife, Petra. She is my world, my everything and never stops being by my side while bringing up our children. She’s been being a Mum to them and then running around like a headless chicken after me, thank you all so much for the support.
I’ll see you soon when hopefully I’ll be feeling substantially better than I do right now.
