Get well Soon Boundsy!
Yes and JB was another, not quite to the same extent, but riding from stage 7 on with a fractured Scaphoid.
Not sure if he had an x-ray on site, but a niggling and quite a painful injury sustained after a crash. He did report at the time that he'd hurt it and that it was sore - he did pretty well to ride more than half the rally with it.

Should take a few weeks to recover; let's see if he is fit again for the Desert Challenge as his speed up front will make the rally's a better spectacle
