Hi guys,
This is Paul's son Dan, my dad has multiple fractures in his left wrist. He went to the orthopedic doc yesterday and he is scheduled to have surgery on the wrist Thursday afternoon at Desert Sam hospital on Dobson. The doc said he will be in the hospital for at least one night. We are not sure when he will be able to ride again, maybe a year before he is fully healed. We want to thank all the AZ old timers and others who helped us out at Air Sarival!

Really sorry to hear about Paul. Hope the surgery goes well. Keep his spirits up, I hope he keeps on riding when he's healed up. I was looking forward to racing with him!

Hate to see any Old Timer getting hurt. We just don't heal as fast as we used to. How did the surgery go??? Keep us updated.
