Wear your gear……had a high speed get off at Pembrey on Saturday morning. Rear end slide, tried to save it and it turned into a high side slam-dunk scenario.
Trusty old Shark RSI did it’s job again, didn’t lose consciousness this time but still a big hit. Hand got caught under the bike which destroyed the glove. Got off lightly with a fracture to my distal phalanx of my little finger and a cracked head of my meta-carpal on my index finger. I think a lesser glove would have meant digits missing…..
Zero points scored so dropped down to third in the championship with no chance of winning it now. I had my opportunity and it’s gone. Could still scrape second in the championship but unlikely.
