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.

    I too have been enjoying reading your blog and will miss the recounting of your adventures. As a veteran of numerous reconstructs, all I can say is keep your head up and you will come back stronger. Take the opportunity to improve your upper body strength and flexibility. I believe I can say we’re all behind you on this, and hope for a speedy recovery.
