Hyper extended right knee 90 degrees, tore acl and lcl off attachment points and broke the bearing surface off of the tiba, tore meniscus.
Concussion with amnesia (thats a story in itself)
L4 and L5 are making contact from degeneration of disc, resulting in bone spurs in siatic canal in L4.

Broken radial in right arm.
Concussion ( happen at the same time as the arm)

Ya they are battle scars, there also trophies, there good for bench racing and yes it is macho
Ok who has the biggest huevos
Posted May 28, 2002 - 07:08 AM
ACl, MCL, LCL and Meniscus, Patella tendon damaged.
Reconstructive surgery 12.23.01
Took Patella tendon from LEFT knee to repair right.
Was jogging 3.18.02
Still swells and is painful. Could have been avoided with braces. Would rather have broken any bone in my body. Hurt like a SOB. Hurt worse 6hs after surgery when the doc made me walk on crutches (remider, both had been cut on). If it had to happen O wish I had been doing something cool when it happened rather than pulling into the pit area.

I have had no significant injuries in 3 seasons of Jet Ski racing, 3 seasons of MX racing and 3 seasons of road racing.
I did break my ankle in a pickup basketball game at the Y. Now there is a dangerous sport
