    :huh Holly crap; exactly how fast were you going brother! Perspective is the right word; I thought I was going pretty fast, but I compared to your video I was crawling! Kick ass man, really!

    Watching oil drip out of your skid plate at the gas station and fixing your bike on the spot; that's part of the rally too.:norton

    what is even crazier is the guy who finished 4th out of the cars and was running in Rally Solo. No navigation other than line of sight, the width and mass of a car etc.

    I got vid of everybody on SS7 but got most everyone on SS6. Hope it's interesting! I wound up with a sprained ankle, minor torn meniscus, and a pulled muscle in my back. Tons of fun, even in pain. Thanks Anders, Jason, volunteers, and everybody! Next year...

    Nice video. I came away with a broken ankle in stage 6 and needed surgery to repair the bone with a plate and 7 screws....but that was six weeks ago, and just two days ago I got the all clear from my surgeon to go riding again so today I am gone riding.....going to burn 10 gallons of 2 stroke mix

    Yeah...I had a pretty good feeling it broke during stage 3 but I was able to ignore the pain untill the last service stop and had to stop about 3 miles into stage 6 because the pain would just not diminish like it was before.

    Yeah, my recovery was pretty fast. I am a fitness fanatic, so two weeks after the surgery my surgeon removed the cast and placed my foot in a removable boot so I can start doing range of motion exercises...and within 4 weeks I had full range of motion and almost 80% strength back. I was doing tons of daily leg extensions on the boken foot to prevent atrophy as much as possible, and was doing 10 miles of rowing per day on my concept2 rowing machine with my bum leg strapped to a skateboard, and 3 miles per day on an elyptical machine with very light weight bearing for blood circulation around the broken bone. So when the Doc gave me the clearance on Thursday all I had to do was get used to wearing a sneaker again and walk...the only thing I am hurting from right now is my in-sole from walking with sneaker again. And hopefully by next week I can ride my mountain bike again...I don't feel comfortable wearing just sneakers and not having the support of an mx boot yet.

    Holy crap Ara!!!! You are one tough dude!!! I had a woman fall in a msf class yesterday. She was nauseous and moaning. Turns out she has a hairline fracture in her ankle . Woman could'nt even speak!!!! I should've shown her the shot of your ankle!!:evil. Maybe we wouldn't have had to carry her. Man, way to go on recovery!!! Glad your back on your bike, how's your daughter doing?

    Thanks, Jena. How we recover from most broken bone injuries is alot in the mind also...yes we have to rest it and let it heal, but I think to stay laid up in bed for weeks and weeks will only prolong the recovery and rehab after the healing. And as long as the inury is being treated by a good doctor, and they are aware of exactly all and how the inury is being exercised, there is no reason why recovery and rehad can't begin the day after the surgery. I was on my rowing maching the day after the surgery and was eating all the brocoli, spinach, and yogart I could stuff in my stomach...my wife could't keep up steaming all the vegatables for the first few weeks when the bone needed all the right nutrients to heal :D. But she is a trooper and a great wife so I am lucky.

    My daughter's recovery from her consussion is finally over...she is also back to full activities...she get an occasional headache but nothing that requires the prescption medication she was on for 2 months after the ski crash.

    How is your concussion? Are you back to full activity?

    Thanks Rodney. Tracking on tarmac is fun also. I just sold my Aprilia SXV550 track bike to buy a new KTM 500EXC to build into a rally bike.... I got hooked on this rallymoto stuff. And maybe if I can find the time I will do some desert racing with it.....on the wrong coast :D.
