Hitting a wall snapped the frame last year.

Its been a month since the MGP finished and there were ups and downs again.

I finished 6th in the first race and had a great run. In the second race I was up to 2nd place on the 2nd lap out of 4 and then crashed. I got to a corner that was dry the first lap but the second time round it was wet and down I went. The bike was quite badly damaged but this year I took the worst of the impact. I went backwards into a solid bank and broke my back in 2 places.

It was fixable and I have had 3 metal rods screwed into my back to fix it and I'm back home now recovering.

Unfortunately after my crash, my bike bounced back into the road and another rider wasn't able to avoid it and crashed too breaking his ankle.

Pics below.

Holy shit!! That's just terrible man.. thankfully you are alive after that. Sorry to hear about the wreck.

On the bright side you have a couple things going for you,

1) The pictures are awesome!

2) Your bike now looks like a menacing scorpion.

You planning on getting back out there again? If you say yes, you are crazy.. but I understand.

Can't imagine how much you would learn about your bike doing something like this.

Wow, some of the coolest photos I've seen on this forum. Looks like the pins in your back will set off metal detectors along with you brass balls.

Thank you for sharing and keep tearing it up proper!

Quick update.

Metal work didn't set off metal detector at airport. Must be titanium. :-p

Yes you learn a lot about your bike doing a full rebuild. Pretty straight forward to be honest. Take each part a bit at a time and it's ok. Really interesting and fun to do. Would recommend it to anyone who has a race/track bike

First day back at work today after the crash and I have survived so far so all good
