Not the best of sundays

Well as many of you will know Boycie had a bit of a get off at PG on Sunday. Went down on some oil going into turn 2. Yes the quick left hander. Went down really hard and long.
According to some other guy that was in the gravel trap he high sided goin in and did the rag doll most of the way through the gravel trap. Result. Severe concusion...broken left fore arm....collar bone broken in 4 places.... a bit messy to say the least. He had memory loss of the whole event and was seriously shaken up.
Hes' in glen eagles now and gettin sorted. They have had to wait with his arm injuries tilll the MRI scan on his nut.
He has an op on the collar bone this mornin ( Tuesday). I'll keep you all posted on how he's doing!
He's in room 846 and open to visitors pretty much all day.

Cheers

Any body wanna buy a flat R1!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get well soon

Farkin hell, a few too many casualties recently

I understand the bike that spilled its guts/oil, blew up big time. According to others who were there all four con rods have snapped and the crank cases blew appart going in to turn two. Take your own conculsions from that

I hate to see a decent bloke suffering and hope all turns out well

Full credit to him he was in good spirits last night considering the circumstances but probably a lot to do with the bang on the head and the pain killers.

Ouch

Sounds rather nasty this one... hurts even more when you were just minding your own and the cause was likely some dick running around with 5yr old oil (or none by the sounds of the mess it made?)

Get well soon mate!!!

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

Really sorry to read about Andy's misfortune, it seems like a really bad crash. I hope he gets well soon. I'm in the US at the moment but I'll visit him in hospital when I get back.

Anyone, visiting Andy give him my regards.
