Hope the medical facilities in Chile are better than in the Canary Islands as seen in Dakars of old. I'm sure that Patsy will be hassling ASO for information and making sure that Jenny gets properly looked after. Katie em please let us all know if you find out that there's stuff that she needs.

Is Piglet OK?
I will - I hope to hear today.

Piglet is not with Jen at teh moment - He's with Patsy
Jen will be missing him!

Make sure she gets Piglet ASAP.
I know it sounds ridiculous but she loves it. It can only help her.
Do we know what hospital she's at?

Well, All my best Jenny!

I really hope that you are doing well, and happy enough. I know this has to suck in many ways, but hey even with a broken leg you are still living all of our dreams!

Besides, breaking a leg in the Dakar is far more interesting than breaking a leg in down town London! ;)

God Bless

awwww crap..... logged in this morning after a night free of internet expecting to hear jenny's overnight standing and instead was confronted by the words "airlift" and "broken hip"

when you manage to get online jenny, thanks for taking us on this trip and i'm really sorry to hear of your accident... both on this thread and your other rally threads you're an inspiration and i would be very surprised if more people aren't rallying in some form or another because of you...

keep up your spirits, bones heal and there's always next time... hope you get a big hug from piglet...

on an aside, well done on guido for taking care of jenny...

Well, if you see her bike is up, so someone was already with her (probably the Italian rider, Cusumano) asking for help.
Let's hope we hear from her soon, things there should be much better than the militar Dakhla hospital visited by my friend Giovanni Uliana at the latest Heroes Legend. He was with Patsy Quick too, not much luck for her team lately... :(

G' Mornin' Jen,

Just settling in for another day of Team F5 Dakar racing but this time without the joy you brought to previous stages. Here's hoping you've been cared for well and are resting comfortably. You'll always be right there on the top step of the podium in my book.

Hi Jenny, so sorry that the adventure is over for now, I know from your writing that you were really looking forward to taking on the dunes.

Heal fast.

I have a feeling that you'll be returning to South America one way or the other, it seems to suit you.

Very best wishes.
