Sorry to hear about your mishap.
Heal up and come do the Mex1 with me next year.
Way less stress and I'm not gonna prerun, so no chance of a accident prior to the event.
Keep up the good additude, or drink more beer.
This makes my Radek does Baja Tshirt that more rare, yea!

That really sucks about the crash! I came late to the party, but I was rooting for you on a bike so similar to one I have! Hopefully you heal quick and can give it another shot in the future!

Got back from hospital today.... Lateral Malleolus Fracture. The bone holding the ligaments on the outside got broken off slightly, and possibly one of the ligaments snapped. I don't think this is that major but the call to withdraw from the race was good. Better to come back and fight another day and be without a limp.
Have to get MRI this week.

Sigh....2 more days to race start.

Exactly. It's a bummer to withdraw, but you got to look at the big picture. You'll have the opportunity (and the support of ADV) next year!

Sorry to hear Radek! I've been following your progress and looking forward to your solo attempt. My knee and neck is still messed up from being hit by a buggy in the silt back in 2010. I recommend Mexican Vicoden with a beer and tequila chaser.* What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Maybe I'll see you at the starting line next year.

Very sorry to hear about that, Radek!
I met you in Lillooet early this summer (with Vasile...) on a KLR. Now I am also riding a KTM 950 towards Ushuaia.
Just got the link to your awesome video and saw the development of your attempt this year.
Good decision to withdraw and heal up properly! You will be even stronger and wiser next year and maybe I will be there to cheer for you!
Good luck and get better soon!
