Turns out that my crash at BRS did more damage to my knee than I thought. I will need fairly major reconstructive surgery. Recovery time is looking like 6 to 9 months.
This means the Tuareg rally next March is out. I probably won’t be doing any racing until next summer. This will certainly affect my Dakar plans as well. I suspect it will take a full year to recover and then get my riding skill just back to where it is now.
I hope to be able to start physical therapy as soon as possible. Staying in shape through this will be a challenge. They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Not sure that applies to a 41 year old guy with a knee injury but I am trying to have that attitude about it.
This wasn’t part of the plan but it is part of my journey none the less.
