Quinn Cody's FB about ten minutes ago:

Hi everyone, thanks for all your concerns. I'm here in San Diego at UCSD. I had surgery last night to repair a spiral fracture to my left femur. I am fine, just in quite a bit of pain; not a scratch on my whole body except for the femur. What happen was less then 10 miles to the end of my section, north of the Hwy 22 junction at around race mile 950, the fog had come in pretty bad. At that point, and I mis-judged my speed on to a small side road around a mud hole, came in too hot, and low-sided. My foot caught the berm on the edge of the road and twisted my leg. I knew instantly that my leg was broken.

I am super disappointed in myself for letting down my team, but I am glad everyone else on our team made it through safe. Everyone at KTM did a great job on their first official Baja 1000. With a lot more testing and some more Baja experience for the crews and riders, KTM will get their first Baja 1000 win. Thanks to KTM, Bonanza Pluming, FMF, Baja Designs and all of our pit volunteers.

Presumably Quinn wears knee braces?

Strange that he got a fracture if he was?

So with stoping at 4:00 am and getting 4 hours of sleep I made it in time to watch my sons last High School football game.
His team lost ,But he played great !!
As for the Race, we had some down time (an hour +)Thuesday am before the bike got to me.
When the bike came to me ,I took off and had a great ride making up a bunch of time passing 5 other bikes ( DUSTY!! )
I passed the bike off at LA Bay then jumped in the chase truck and headed south.
I jumped back on the Bike at 8:30 pm and road another 120 miles and had a blast !! The silt was so deep it was coming over the front fender like a wave of warter.It was a great time riding with my old Honda teamates from the 80's
From what I just now read on face book the bike did finish after being stuck in the silt beds way down south for some time.

I will get a full up date in a few days need toget some sleep !!!!!!!
You are my new freakin hero. Rode two legs of the B1K, drove freakin home and went to your kids football game.

That much is self evident.

Pros normally wear braces to protect bone.

Point is he either had a massive get off or was not wearing braces. For a pro that would be weird as they are cheap insurance.

Understand now?

He had a big lowside and caught the kerb. A femur is a hard bone to break.

I beg to differ...Knee braces are for protecting the KNEE JOINT ONLY! They do not protect the upper and lower leg bones.You can still break a femur or lower leg bones while wearing a brace.I know-I wear them.As a matter of fact ,If Quinn was wearing a brace, it could have conceivably contributed to a broken femur I've had this very lenghty discussion with several orthopods..

I've hear they move stress away from one area at the possible expense of another, as you say.
