It is a pretty bleak day for me today. I had a crash in a race just about a week ago and injured my knee. It didn't seem too bad at the time but I just got back from seeing the doctor and reviewing the MRI. I did some rather serious mangling of various tendons and it is going to require surgery then probably 9 months before I can be racing again. With the Tuareg being only about 6 months away this means I am out.

Keep fighting for the Dream!

Hate to hear this news Doug. You've got YEARS of riding and racing ahead though so heal up right and we'll see you back on trail!! You've inspired a lot of folks already and we're still rooting for you!

Noooo! that sucks Doug, heal well & I'm sure you'll be able to give it a go for '13...

The only drawback I can see is that this one would have looked sweet on the resume submitted for Dakar in '15

Awwww shit Doug.....I hate to hear this. I know you can't race for 9 months, but what about just riding??? By the way, Docs can be wrong. Look into alternative stuff, and see if you can get back into it before the 9 months. I believe it's possible. So, ACL torn, meniscus tear?

Sorry to hear the news.

Talk to Dave, there is a little 2,000 mile rally called the Sertoes in August that will be a great replacement.

One more space available

RMS has room for one more rider to join us. We have a great group going, including Charlie (lastplace), Sid, Dirk, and Jean-Luc.

We have all the shipping (to/from Oakland, CA) and logistics worked out. We also have a sponsor for the team, which is making this an even more affordable proposition.

If you are interested, please contact me.

Cheers,
Dave

Sweet, Jean-Luc's ride report down to Chile was the first one I ever read on ADV.
