My first trials event ended half way through section 1. As I passed around the first set of flags my front wheel dipped down into a rut. The front bottomed out and the shock wave travelled through my arm to my shoulder causing it to dislocate. In the past I have always managed to push it back in myself but not this time? THANKS VERY MUCH George for trying to help the pain was just too intense. THANKS TO MARK for assisting, packing up and delivering my bike and car to the hospital. A VERY SPECIAL THANKS TO MARY-ANNE for negotiating the roads so carefully and getting me to the Medi-Clinic.
Let me tell you, seeing my name on a syringe filled with morphine was truly a sweet moment. Later my shoulder was pushed back in place.
Surgery (admittedly been avoiding) seems to be my only option. See you at the next trial albeit as an observer.
Ps- There were other riders that helped move my bike off the course etc, thanks to you guys sorry I do not know your names..
